GNOME 3 - lots of gratuitous changes in store!

Jon Corbet (the guy behind has written an interesting (and disturbing!) preview of Gnome 3.

Suffice it to say that the Gnome UI folks are radically changing the way pretty much everything works, regardless of how current users feel about the changes, in the name of making the UI more "intuitive" for "novice users".  Yes...just like KDE did with KDE 4.

I have only two comments:
  • My 3 year old likes GNOME just the way it is, thank you.  I guess he's not a typical novice user.
  • Thank $DIETY for XFCE and LXDE.
