Gnome "Gnome 3 has received a lot of disapproval of late, from the Gnome foundation being charged with not taking care of its users, or losing mindshare, to Gnome 3 itself being an unusable mess. I've been using Gnome 3 myself for a few months to sort the truth from the fiction, and to try and understand just how the Gnome foundation expects their newest shell to be used. I will end with some thoughts on how Gnome 3 can be improved. The review will require a fairly lengthy preface, however."

Gnome 3.6

From playing around with Gnome 6.6 preview in Fedora 18 alpha, to me it seems that the percieved shortcomings with Gnome 3 are slowly but surely being addressed.

3.6 in places is looking to turn out quite well.

I still think however that the idea to get rid of the taskbar by default was a bad one and the icons on my 20" monitor are far too large (and the tooltip text far too small, but better than before).

Overall though, Gnome 3 getting into a very useable position that could become a better product that Gnome 2.
