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.

Fallback interface

Personally I'm more interested in trying out the fallback interface, since I dislike graphics intensive desktop effects that wreak havoc with many video cards or simply aren't compatible with older hardware. Any comments on the fallback interface? Thanks!

I thought that the default on the SuSE live CD available at was pretty slick, though slow. Kind of silly, though: it's like a locked down GNOME 2, nothing is configurable through the usual menus. Minimize/maximize buttons are enabled. (YaST and other SuSE configuration stuff is available, though, and so is the GNOME 3 configure tool.) The new messaging system is activated and that's pretty nice, I guess.

Back to XP.

EDIT: I have a netbook with ATI X300 graphics, which haven't been supported by Catalyst since 9.3 and aren't supported by radeonhd. You can install other drivers through SuSE's tools.
