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 have been trying different DE's in Linux for the past months and although GNOME 2 had its limitations, nothing can replace it at the moment. XFCE is the only desktop that can get close but still a mile away. I have tried many times Unity and GNOME Shell, and the latest KDE is just so impressive but soon starts to feel very fatty and soon ends up bitter. As for Unity, I think it is better than GNOME Shell but I can't really buy Shuttleworth ideas on Unity and GNOME Shell itself is a total failure on multi-tasking.

The people who are planning and writing these softwares are production unliterate people and know little about software engineering. Breaking patterns, setting up alien user interfaces only proves that. Most computers are used for work and multitasking. Win7 and GNOME 2 are/was a success for that.

I'd say to linux friends... right now we need a saviour.
