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.

If you like GNOME, good for you. I was never comfortable with a desktop and apps that had fat widgets on all the themes I liked and forced UI behaviours I didn't want on me in the name of simple configuration dialogs.

That's the beauty of an open platform. You can use GNOME, while I run LXDE and wait to see if Trinity can pull off modernizing KDE 3 enough for me to mix it back into my daily life. (Konqueror WAS my desktop in KDE3 and, in KDE4 it just doesn't feel right somehow... not to mention apparently being unmaintained outside of fixes from the KHTML maintainers.)
