Gnome The day is finally here, the day that the GNOME team releases GNOME 3.0, the first major revision of the GNOME project since 2002. Little of GNOME 2.x is left in GNOME 3.0, and as such, you could call it GNOME's KDE4. We're living in fortunate times, what, with two wildly divergent open source desktops.

Of course.

I like the way you can switch between applications, looks like some users are having problem getting use to it but it feels natural for me.

No need to minimize windows, I already did that since GNOME 2.28, I used compiz instead of the task bar, (I just dragged the mouse to the top-right corner to trigger expose and switch between applications).

Centralized menu, the way to launch applications it is easier and intuitive.

The way it leverages the power of virtual desktops is great, I thank to them because they reused what was already there w/o the need to reinvent the wheel.

It very stable and smooth for a .0 release, this way they show respect for their users instead of using us as guinea pigs.

The notifications system doesn't get in your way with unnecessary animations, it just goes what it has to do w/o distractions.

There are many more, I have a lot of hope for the next release, I tried Unity and is not for me, GNOME Shell is more close to they way I work.
