A brief overview of the GNOME 3.0 desktop.
Hello, my name is Kenny Strawn with some facts to share with you:
Yes, I'm talking about the next version of the GNOME Desktop here. It's time we PC World members get a taste of what's to come with Linux.
GNOME 3.0 is only four months away. It's time we all start focusing on this next version of the GNOME Desktop and describe the features expected to come out:
GNOME Shell (the default interface proposed for GNOME 3.0) offers plenty of improvements, and I am running it myself:
As you can see, the Activities menu is of especially good value. As you hover over the button, the desktop zooms out along with all the other desktops you have. You can see all your workspaces, and the Applications, Places, and Recent Documents menus all reside under it. As for the System Preferences, they appear when you click your username; you should see a menu, and the third one down is the Control Center. Yes, GNOME Shell also is more appealing to users.
You actually are able to search for files using the "Find" bar, and in GNOME 3.0 there is also talk of integration of possibly GNOME Zeitgeist to enable search indexing. Yes, this will put Linux head-to-head with Windows 7, and possibly even define Linux's future.
If you have any questions about GNOME 3.0, please PM me. No, I don't mean to troll around the Wikis like I did the Forums. I'm really sorry for that.
