Linux When GNOME did its version 3 and Ubuntu came up with Unity, the popularity of Linux Mint sky-rocketed, because they stuck with GNOME 2.32. The Mint team has been working on their next version for a while now, and today, they first unveiled what they're working on. There's good news - the team is working on making GNOME 3 likeable. Their question for this release: "How do we make people like Gnome 3? And what do we provide as an alternative to those who still do not want to change?"

Maybe some os interface designers should take some cues from modern website ui development.
For ease of accessibility you often find a horizontal drop down and vertical menus.

Web and usability should not be set in the same sentene.

It will be a bloodbath.

I can see it now...

Click on the Laughing Monkey to view contents of your hard drive. Click on the Mom icon to open your email. Double click the Fridge to open IM.

It would be horrible, non-discoverable, and non-standard.

Hey maybe the Gnome3 Devs ARE Web Devs after all.
