    Even since i run KDE right now, Gnome 3 is always on my mind. Its just a good approach to the desktop. This could be a real great push forward how you interact with your desktop.

    I don't want any effects, but it doesn't look like I have a choice with gnome-shell if I want to use it. Still experimenting and learning.
    thats fine for you but that was not the objective here and maybe some people like using compisitiing effects for there desktops.

    I've tested out the live-cd image and it's awesome. I'm trying to install it on my 11.4 openSUSE but I'm having trouble. Can someone give me some noobish instructions on how to install at least the gnome3 preview?? I need some noobish instructions as I just installed openSUSE the other day just so I can get gnome3. I was previously using ubuntu. I've installed the gnome-shell (verstion 2.91.6-6.9.1) from the yast software manager but it didn't change my desktop to the gnome 3 desktop. What am I missing?

    Hi,

    I am still questioning myself about the real usability of GNOME 3 : I am not sure it'll get the job done. Apart from the bling, bling, I have doubts... I'll wait a little to see some reviews. But an early preview I read was not quite happy with GNOME 3.

    when you have installed it, you need to choose it at the login. On the login screen there is a word: "session" or similar and when you click on it you can choose different DEs, like KDE, Gnome and Gnome preview. Gnome preview or Gnome 3 is then Gnome 3 and when you then log in, with your password, it loads it.

    For the preview, all I did was open a terminal window and run:

    sudo zypper in gnome-shell

    That pulled in what was needed, or seemed to.

    Hi
    That's only the preview.... this system is now running 3.0 from a
    fresh install from the liveCD (See the evolution version )

    Maybe we can see some screenshots?

    I presume that Gnome 3 will have the same controversy as KDE 4 had. There are people that want Gnome the way it is to stay.
    Same was with KDE 3. Some people got really turned off (so i read), but look what KDE became. Nice and shiny and so will Gnome.
    If it is released i will install it. Right now, i just don't have the time i think.

    Hi
    Posted a couple up on the April Screenshot thread.

    Not sure, people have been playing with the preview for a while, so the
    concept is old so to speak. It's a little different for sure, but as
    always with Gnome, the important stuff just works

    This netbook is handling it fine sofar but only been up three hours or
    so, all configured up. Just need to download my apps from my home
    repositories...
