linuxnja writes "Gnome 3.0 is the next major release of the gnome desktop environment. This release has had controversy following it around since the beginning because of the radical new UI changes it brings.
In this article, asininetech's "cafejunkie" gives an overview of the new desktop with a short screencast to follow. Worth a read if you are considering giving the new gnome a try."
