Gnome Yesterday it was announced that GNOME 3.0 is delayed till next year. The extra time has given the Shell Developers some more time to play around with new concepts and they have come up a new mockup. Here are the new mockups.

Call me ignorant, but I don't understand what is meant by "Shell", in regards to the UI.

Is there no Shell in the current version of GNOME (2.whatever)?

Is the shell optional? Will it come by default? I kind of like the simplicity of GNOME.. this new thing seems to go against what I like...

The shell is what is around the main working area (the active window). Having no shell = having only the window, not even a Window manager bar or panel, just the window.

The Gnome2 shell is composed of Gnome-panel, nautilus-desktop and Metacity. KDE one is composed of Plasma and KWin. Gnome3 have un unified shell for everything.
