GNOME Shell -the UI revolution is well under way

“As with KDE’s 4.0 release, GNOME 3 has attracted many
complaints and negative publicity. While KDE aimed to keep their
interface essentially the same (although failing to reach feature
parity for at least another two years), the GNOME community decided
to make an even more radical change. Did they do the right thing? I
think they did. While incremental changes can get you far, by their
nature there’s a limit to how far they can stretch. KDE bumped into
those barriers four years ago and set out to create a future-proof
infrastructure. GNOME 3 did the same a few years later, recognising
that the way many of us use computers has changed radically.”
