Gnome Ars has reviewed GNOME 3.0, and concludes: "The solid technical work that has been done under the hood really complements the new user experience features in GNOME 3.0. Despite some of the gaps in the feature set, I think that the environment and the new shell is a good starting point for building something even better. The GNOME contributors will be able to iterate on the design and move it forward in future updates."

I think that is as accurate as calling Emacs bloated and Vi[m] streamlined.

I don't think KDE is for super-tweak-a-holics anymore. Mainly because tweaking isn't just for tweaking sake anymore. With KDE 4.x, you have real flexibility to dramatically change real behavior and real appearance.

Gnome 3 is so different that I don't think its as successful being a simple system with sane defaults. Its too different to conform to how people think it should work, because people have never worked that way before.
