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?"

old gnome is creaky. when it works its magic. when it fails, it does so in fantastic fashion. Strip it apart, put it back together, maybe you've got something. Compiz is a mess. When it fails, it is miserable. Sadness everywhere. Meanwhile in CLI land all sorts of magical things are being created. For the average power user of linux, if he/she doesn't enjoy the command line using modern linux desktops will not feel expressive.
