Gnome The future of GNOME - an interesting subject. GNOME 3 has been out and about for a while, and it hasn't exactly been a smashing success. One of the efforts to take GNOME to the next level is what the team refers to as GNOME OS - but in reality, it's a set of improvements to GNOME that are just as interesting to GNOME-the-desktop-environment.

I would agree with your last point about unity except I keep having really irritating performance issues, occasional slowdowns and crashes.

This on both nvidia and ati with both proprietary and foss drivers.

Really sucks.

Also multi-monitor support pretty much sucks and it had just gotten decent with gnome2.

I have an nvidia card using the foss drivers and I've never had such problems but YMMV.

I don't know what you dislike about the multi-monitor support, I find it good.

Your hardware must be very special or your installation is broken. I've been using unity on multiple computers without issue for quite a while.

I have a one month old high spec machine based on Ivy Bridge. I tried everything, and K/Ubuntu 12.01 simply kept freezing at random times. It was a system wide freeze, even the mouse cursor didn't move. I google'ed around, and I was not the only one experiencing this with 12.01.

Exactly what happened to me! I had this issue with K/Ubuntu 12.04, so it must be something they did at kernel level or something.

You are right again about the multi-monitor issue too. Gnome 2 started to work really well.
