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.

So yeah, I wouldn't mind the new shell on my Tablet or Netbook, but not on my workstation.


That depends... these mockups appear to show a full-screen UI that appears when you open the Activities view. What they *don't* show is what you get when you're actually working.

My impression is that under normal use, the shell will get out of the way, leaving something not disimilar to what you have now, the panel across the top - *not* a netbook-style UI where everything runs full-screen all the time.

Ah, apparently they're from Jon McCann's talk on Gnome Shell from the Guadec conference...

There's a (short) video included that gives a better idea of the interaction...
