    Smile Gnome 3 reloaded

    Now that Gnome 3 is finally available, i wonder how do you like it and what do you think it makes it better or worst in you opinion?

    Gnome 3.0 is here

    I will install it myself this week, just to see it with my own eyes. But i am really curious about the rest who actually has it running already.
    Perhaps we can be neutral and objective as we reflect on it.

    I had the preview installed on an old computer and I wasnt very impressed.

    I dont know how much difference between the preview and the final is, but I know for sure that Gnome 3 breaks with a lot of ways how to use a computer. I dont know if this is right or not, but it is for sure not my piece of cake.
    I dont want to have a "great wall of icons", I want menus, intelligent categories in which apps and so on are arranged in a nice way. Like it was in Gnome 2.

    optic-wise it is the same style as with good old Gnome 2, and this disappoints me a bit. I mean the icons and stuff, of course the desktop and so on look different. But icons, menus and so on have the same style and sometimes I really ask myself "is a 90s style really what they want?"

    Also the reduction of possibilities to tweak the GUI to users needs is beyond me. All the time this "this distracts the user" - from where do they know that? Simplification driven so far that it actually complicates everything far more...

    anyway, I hope that in the future there will be some more options to suit Gnome 3 to the so to say conventional users (like me).

    I will have another look at it later on, but from what I have seen so far, I think it is worse than Gnome 2.

    Just a link from arstechnica in regards of Gnome 3. Worth reading.

    I thought the Gnome 3 preview a little buggy as well. Now there's that big notice everywhere demanding pizza for a finished Gnome 3.
