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?"

In the contrary my friend, I'm sure GNOME devs are more than satisfied for making GNOME 3 extensible, so they can just focus in the core and let the rest customize it the way they want. And the best part in my opinion is they never advertised GNOME 3 as the powerful and scripted platform it is, but despite that developers and users are taking it to the next level.

What is the point them? Can't they see that it will eventually become something completely different - and back to the roots?
