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.

So, yes, the it's the designers job to "FORCE" you to do things their way because they've spent countless man hours figuring out how to do things the right, most effective, most efficient and safest way, all things being equal, that you probably haven't put much thought to despite your subjective personal preferences.


In fact, these designers usually spend countless hours in thinking about making things right, they usually take into account every single factor that could possibly affect the product, and there is another thing which they usually do - ignoring the users' opinions.

Really? GNOME seems to spend more time on pointless arguments than they do discussing and thinking over new features and interface changes. Their ongoing arguments with Canonical make it big, while they remove features and functionality at the drop of a hat; barely any infighting or arguments whatsoever. Features are just pulled.
