Gnome "GNOME 3.4 introduces a range of new features. A new document search facility allows quick access to content stored both on your device and online. Smooth scrolling means that moving through content is slick and graceful. New application menus, which are located on the top bar, provide a useful way to access application options and actions." And a lot more.

The GNOME devs decided to strip out configurability, and the result is that users don't get to tweak the environment to their preference, but rather the backlash swells until there are whole forks instead.

KDE remains a solid, single unit with only the very reasonable splinter of razor-qt for lightweight environments. It's also an ugly, key-and-click-heavy clunker.

At this point, I'm running Compiz and XFCE with the beautiful and lightweight Plank dock - sorta. Thunar has issues. This forking is getting ridiculous, and I think the elementaryos team is the best shot at getting the GTK+ desktop back on track whether by their own success or in setting the bar for others.
