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.

"I hate what they did to my GNOME... In a world here user interfaces are standard (close buttons, taskbar, start menu), GNOME 3 will fail harder than KDE 4 did...
I abandoned KDE forever since KDE 4 and I moved to GNOME... And now? Shall I have to abandon GNOME as well? And then? Move to XFCE4 or forget Linux altogether? My only regret is that my core i7 laptop PC was 999 Euro, whilst a core i7 MacBook Pro is 2499 Euro. "

You could try a move back to KDE. KDE 4.6 is the best current desktop system out there, bar none. The one and only problem was KDE 4.0 wasn't ready for ordinary users, the developers said so, but distributions shipped it anyway. KDE has recovered from that fiasco ages ago now.

Such a shame if you won't even give the best desktop system available to you right now a try. Your loss, though.

I've seen that argument used alot in the past few weeks. If it wasn't ready for ordinary users then why did they call it KDE 4.0 and not KDE 4.0 BETA?

Windows 7 and MacOSX are better ... it is purely subjective topic. If he doesn't like it ... he doesn't like it.
