With so much controversy surrounding the recent release
of GNOME 3 and Canonical's Unity, there's only one way to resolve
things: a head-to-head battle royale. Gareth Halfacree investigates
which next-generation desktop environment might suit you better to
set the record straight once and for all...
"GNOME 3 and the GNOME Shell have their fans, who castigate
Canonical's Unity - and vice-versa. There are also those who decry
both, claiming that a move to icon-based launchers represents a
dumbing-down of the classic GNOME user interface. Worries over
compatibility and extensibility cause further concerns, until
nobody is quite sure what's going on any more."
