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.

Windows 3.1 to Windows 95/NT4 was quite a change indeed. But I disagree on newer versions. I rarely use Windows, but the small amount of 'Windows UI knowledge' was effortlessly transferable between Windows versions.

And same could be said about this gnome transition.

So I fail to see why is it that what was good for the goose is now so awful for the gander.

Have you actually tried Gnome Shell?

It's really completely different from Gnome 2. This doesn't have to be a bad thing, but it certainly is a bigger change than even changing from Win95 to 7 would be.
