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.

Actually you're mistaken in regard to Win2K/9X and switch to later versions. UI!=GUI.

Apart from skinning there is no particular difference between Windows 95 and Windows XP in the way you interact with the Desktop. Windows 7 is merely minor differences on that particular implementation of the Desktop Metaphor.

Ever heard of that thing which Windows Vista called its file explorer? Or the regular mutations of the Control Panel in NT?

Most GUI elements in XP worked the same, Configuration Items were indeed different. However the amount of configuration in VISTA and 7 needed is far lower than Windows XP and lower.

Reorganising control panel items isn't "changing the UI".
