Celebrating Gnome 3.0

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

Congratulations to everyone who has worked so hard to make Gnome 3.0 a reality. It’s a great accomplishment, excellent work by many people, and worthy of celebration. I know the PPA is popular and I’m sure it will be a hit in 11.10. Well done all!

    I hope so too!

    Soon time to give Unity a spin on the laptop, this far both Gnome 3.0 and Unity looks to be super on laptops I have not tried either Unity or Gnome 3.0. Oh, Choice! I love choice!

    Oh, Also on a personal note; Thank you Mark for introducing me to the world of Linux, without you I would probably still hate coputers.

    Congratulations to Gnome developers for this new release.
    Now, with this new gained maturity is time to collaborate with the rest of the “broken” and “adverse” f/oss ecosystem, thanks..

    Hi Mark.

    Looking forward to spin Ubuntu with Gnome 3. Ubuntu do deliver the slickest Linux, but Gnome 3 really is a major leap in innovative Desktop UI – those 2 bundled must be a keeper!

    Congrats to gnome devs. This new gnome is very beautiful and more easy to use thant Unity (Sorry Mark ;) ) Now I dream of a fusion of Gnome 3 interfaces and Unity interaction (as Lenses). Is it possible for Unity and Gnome3 to get married and make a beautiful baby ?

    I hope that we can have a choice between Unity and Gnome3, having a session for each one, I tried on my Natty Beta last Week, and with the yesterday update, it crashed all my system :’( I will try tonight to reinstall gnome3 on my fresh install

    That PPA screwed up my system I can’t use Gnome-Shell nor Unity, but KDE… which I don’t like that much (fail system tray).

    I like Gnome-Shell way more than Unity but there’s no sane debian based distro to be using Gnome-Shell atm. Screw rpm.

    I have a feeling that both ubuntu (unity) and gnome failed ~

    I mean if you combine those 2 you may have something that can be used but as it is now stand alone …

    Both unity and gnome 3 looks more like a tablet pc – ipad customised OS. 99% of desktop users dont have a touch screen and what unity – gnome 3 did looks like a touch screen friendly OS.

    Dont get me wrong here , many of the new features are ok but many arent.

    Trying to make linux more user friendly in my own way of thinking doesnt have to do with the desktop enviroment it self. Ok ubuntu software center is good but you cant compite the “drag and drop application into the thrash” that OSx use both windows and linux like to spread the installation files – dependencies in so many different locations making extremely difficult to find and solve any problem .

    My point is at the easy of use , ok we have a nice software center that took the linux out of the dark age of terminal manual compile everything ( .deb dpgk synaptic apt ….. ) with the nice fancy interface that have an install button a remove and a reinstall in same cases but even now if something gets wrong in the way the user have to mess maybe hours with the terminal and have the know how to do to fix it .

    Easy of use isnt just an Eye candy environment.

    According to me, it’s not a real improvement, and neither is Unity. A desktop environment should remain effective, and Unity is only a somehow disabled-desktop.
    Why forcing people to use it from 11.04, when it’s not even finished yet? You can’t customize anything in this left hideous toolbar, nor properly add or remove objects from it. Such a lame shame.
    I’ve been using Ubuntu since 6.04, now I’ll just join the wiser people of Debian.

    No software is ever “finished.” It is “maintained” until it is “obsolete.”

    If you want, simply pick “Ubuntu Classic” from the login screen. I know I will at least sometimes. You can also go Debian if you want to, perhaps a true Linux geek and a Distro were not meant to mate for life. I want to stick with Ubuntu to converge as many folks as possible *off* of non-Unix-like systems. @all, does that make me less or more of a Linux geek :P?

    Now I don’t know what to do.

    I love Ubuntu and GNOME. I love GNOME 3, I’ve try it by using ISO image from OpenSUSE and now from Fedora, both RPM based system.

    I love Debian packages system, and find Ubuntu very user friendly. I switched from RedHat and Mandrake distro because Ubuntu usability and GNOME default.

    I disagree Unity and more if it is “unfinished”, as I read. I haven’t test it. But I don’t want to spend time on it, because I found GNOME 3 very good for my productivity (yes in a very short of time, I found I love it!).

    I don’t want to leave Ubuntu, but I don’t know what to do: Switch to another distro or just wait for 11.10 for Ubuntu to support GNOME 3.

    I think the bigger and more touchy concern with most people isn’t whether or not the Classic interface can be used in Natty. It’s actually the fact that the Classic interface will be removed after a release or two.

    While some folks are comfortable with what they get `right here’ and `right now’, many like the reassuring feel of future security. In other words, knowing that something you like and are very “used to” will remain in place for the foreseeable future is important to some folks.

    Unity and ‘Gnome shell’ are both major steps away from the “comfort zone” most folks are used to. A crude analogy: It’s like telling people in the real world that ‘Cars’ are not going to be manufactured anymore with steering wheels or brake/acceleration controls. Instead most functions of the car are going to be handled by an AI specifically designed to maximize comfort and fuel economy. How many folks do you think will simply put up with a change like this?

    To add an option for added functionality is one thing, and to restrict options in the name of (misguided) “simplicity” is a whole other thing.

    Gnome3 isn’t disappointing. An only thing I have noticed is ability to do NOTHING with the desktop. I can’t even configure my panel, edit menu, add icons to the desktop… I haven’t notice a single improvement in Gnome3 applications. Everyone knows applications are the most important and it seems gnome applications are in stagnation since very long time. Summing up we have gnome shell which is big step backward in terms of usability and configurability and applications which nearly didn’t change since gnome 2.0. Unity looks better, but it’s still far away from KDE.

    I have been with Ubuntu long enough to appreciate it every way, and spread the word around too. I personally reccommend it to my friends too. I love Unity. But, people generally do not like change. In almost all the mailing-lists I have subscribed to, people are taking about switching over to other Distros.

    I’m not saying people all over the world do not like the Natty Narwhal, Unity, or the road Ubuntu’s taking. But, I see it as a lack of proper marketing strategy. Popularisng a product is as important as building it in the first place.

    The only distro that have a fully working and stable GNOME, right now, is Archlinux.

    And its great, i didn´t thought that it would be that stable and usable for everyday work.

    Unity is nice too but i really can´t imagine that it will have a co-existens beside GNOME3 without problems.

    GNOME3 is doing more and more stuff which heavily integrates into the GNOME-Shell, those stuff wouldn´t work on Unity and would have to be re-implemented.

    Sounds like a lot of time-wasting.

    @srinivas

    I don’t think adding complexity to an install is macho. Do you? By all means, make your own Linux distribution, and add that option. Every Ubuntu user has the easy choice of lots of alternative shells and desktop environments, that’s part of the great thing about Ubuntu. Almost everything is one apt-get away, and if something you care about isn’t, it’s an open environment for your to help others get it too, just step up and participate.

    As for your other questions… no, I feel no shame in the fact that Ubuntu is built on GNU and Linux. I also don’t think the people behind those initiatives are so insecure as to feel left out when we don’t put their brand in our brand. You, and every other GNU or Linux fanboy knows exactly what’s GNU and what’s Linux, so there is no benefit to shouting it out. New users who may become contributors to those initiatives will quickly figure it out. And we won’t turn off potential users with a flurry of terminology they don’t understand. All in all, Ubuntu’s track record for bringing new users and contributors to GNU, Linux and Debian is very good. I doubt your whining is much of a help in that regard, but perhaps I’m mistaken and I’d gladly stand corrected if you have facts to back it up.

    As for thanking other communities, yes, we do that, all the time in many ways. Lots of those communities work hard to make sure their stuff is fully and properly reflected in Ubuntu as a result. I don’t think you have any point here, other than perhaps to try and be mean and a smart-ass. You succeed admirably on two out of three counts: mean, and an ass.

    Having test driven both Unity and Gnome 3 for a couple of weeks, I can’t for the life of me understand the decision to implement Unity over Gnome 3. Simply put, Gnome 3 is the most polished, elegant, and functional desktop environment I have ever used. I wish I could say that about Unity, but I can’t.

    When I sit down and use Gnome 3 I get the feeling that someone stepped back from the table and asked, “How can we re-invent the desktop environment in such a way that users have a fundamentally more enjoyable and productive experience?” It seems they put away all preconceived notions and built from the ground up with the user in mind. The result is something completely innovative that has indeed enhanced both my productivity and my overall computing experience.

    When I sit down with Unity, I get the feeling that someone said, “Here’s an idea from Macintosh that works well. Here’s one from Windows. Oh, and let’s grab this piece from Gnome 2. Also–let’s try to make it so it can someday be utilized on a smart phone.” The result is a product that feels cobbled together when compared to Gnome 3.

    Mark, I know you saw something or experienced something in Gnome 3 that gave you pause, and I have no doubt that you will bring Unity around–even if it means trying to out-Gnome Gnome. But honestly, the best thing you could do for the Linux community is kiss and make up with Gnome and implement Gnome 3. As for me, I’ve moved to Fedora for a season because of the beautiful way they’ve implemented Gnome 3. But having said that, I’d be lying if I said that installing Fedora wasn’t a PITA. I’m hoping that in the near future Gnome 3 will be implemented in either Ubuntu or Mint. Ubuntu has been home for me for a very long time, but I feel like in this case there has been great duplication of effort only to arrive at a significantly inferior product. No offense intended, just my heartfelt opinion.

    Although these two desktop environments may appear similar, they are remarkably different. One is a work of art. The other is a Frankenstein.

    Everything is not apt-get away. It has to be brought to that stage by hundreds/thousands of developers. shooing me away by comments which are not “filtered” will not make everything else right.

    Come on Mark, Now, who is insecure. U are facing the insecurity of losing new “customers” for ur operating system. As for us “fan boys” we will always fight for “powered by GNU/Linux” label to appear wherever it is used. Suddenly u seem to be upset by the word GNU/Linux. Dont forget that your product aint anything except GNU/Linux unless u develop all the userland and the kernel urself.

    Any desktop environment without a complete menus is going to be rather useless and moreover very user unfriendly. I like to see my entire desktop in a glance. That’s why I like the traditional Gnome 2 look and feel. I suggest that Unity use the Canonical logo in the upper left hand corner to bring out the wiper as sort of an Apple Menu of favorite applications. The Gnome top and bottom panels should remain as they provide the most efficient feedback to the user in regards to the state of the system. The purpose of a desktop is largely to launch programs and and easily keep track of the programs that are running and the “windows” that are open. A large annoying wiper moving in and out on the left hand side of the screen just doesn’t cut it. I migrated to Ubuntu from Sidux when KDE 4 became the Sidux default. If Unity isn’t drastically improved or abandoned entirely, I will once again be migrating to something better. The biggest problem with “GNU”Linux is the monkeys who control the repositories. They can kill a quality distribution very quickly.
