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.

moving ahead?

In what sense is Gnome 3 "moving ahead"? Moving backwards or moving sideways i can understand, but ahead? How is taking functionality out and making the software less useful moving ahead? Or is the assumption that people are getting more and more stupid and need their software to be dumbed down to suit? Gnome 3 is the "sesame street" version of a Gnome. Good for kids, but what do adults do with it?
