LXer: This week at LWN: Shell and Zeitgeist: the future of GNOME?

Published at LXer:

The announcement a few weeks ago of the preliminary plans for GNOME 3.0 catapulted the GNOME Shell and GNOME Zeitgeist into the spotlight. Previously little-known, these programs are now identified as the basis of a new user experience in GNOME 3.0. Meanwhile, both are in their early stages, and few have tried them, with the result that they are surrounded by question marks. What exactly are these programs? What vision do they share in common? Most importantly of all, are they capable of bearing the expectations placed upon them? Any answers to these questions must be tentative, because both projects are in rapid development, and certain to change dramatically by the time GNOME 3.0 is released. All the same, those in search of preliminary answers can find them with a bit of quick compiling.

With the use of mono (microsoft software trap) in Zeitgest, we may no longer be able to flush mono and microsoft from our linux install without breaking Gnome. I wonder if the ultimate plan of the gnome project is to merge gnome with windows and thus provide micorsoft with its own open source software? Something to think about anyway. I plan on moving to KDE.
