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.

Firstly I think that Gnome are trying out some interesting ideas but...

I also think they are chasing a myth of the average user and alienating their real users. For example from the proposed changes in nautilus such as removing F3 split view (because the average user might accidentally press 3 and be confused) Gnome seems to think the average user is a dis-coordinated idiot.

Gnome needs to realise that the average Linux user is more tech savvy than the average Windows user not less.
