Are Linux distros downplaying the Gnome 3.0 preview?

Filed under
Software

Lately, there has been some obervers in the Linux community that have been wondering if some Linux distributions might be sort of downplaying the Gnome 3.0 Stealth Preview. Having pushed KDE 4.0 too early on some of its users, those Linux distributions might have made an overkill and in the process could have broken a promise to keep the new Gnome away from some users until it is fully completed and that its been fully tested.

Whatever the reasons are, the inaccessibility of the Stealth Preview could be just what the doctor ordered...

Some of the Gnome shell's potential lies in the fact that it's a basic attempt to redesign Linux computer desktops. Since Linux computer users neither seem unhappy with the current state of the desktop nor in any agreement about how it could improved in any way, this departure is seen by some as risky.
