Filed under
Software

The gnome developers are hard at work making the first linux desktop, that do not look like a cheap windows/mac rip off, even better. There are stupid mistakes they made along the way, but still Gnome 3.0 gives the best experience free software can offer by default. Obviously there are more feature need to be included to make it a complete replacement for your good old Gnome 2.x. For the time being you can use these extensions to get some functionalities back.

Anyway, Gnome developers continue its work to have a consistent behaviour across the entire desktop. With its next incarnation, the team also escalates this behaviour towards individual applications. Meet Gnome contacts, the contacts application that you will see in the 3.2 version of your awesome desktop.

gnome 3.2

Gnome DOES look like a cheap Win95 rip off, I'm sorry. But the real hilarious thing is, the only reason why it got some success is because it is default on Ubuntu, because it was all KDE before, the older ones among us will know what I mean.

And if Ubuntu switches to Qt for their desktop, it is obscurity again for Gnome/GTK.

Meh
