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?"

What's wrong with KDE if you want a more traditional desktop?

That's right. KDE 4 suffers more from the bad code quality and Gnome 3 suffers from the broken design! I have been using Gnome since 2.0 and I just jumped to KDE4. What I can say is that KDE 4.6 and 4.7 has a acceptable code quality. Another thing is that with KDE, I still have hopeful since code quality can be improved. But with Gnome 3, I feel it is an dead end for me.
