Gnome-Shell, I changed my mind

,----[ Quote ]
| What is nice about the gnome-shell concept, 
| is the use of virtual desktops, I know they 
| have always been there, but it makes it a 
| natural intuitive task. Switching 
| applications from one desktop to the other 
| is a pleasure, that makes it easy to 
| configure your desktops the way you want it 
| quickly...


A fresher Linux desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| Gnome 3.0 promises to give Linux the desktop 
| polish it needs.
| It's been a long time in the coming but this 
| year Linux will get a makeover, thanks to 
| the Gnome project. In September the Gnome 
| team, makers of one of the most popular 
| desktop interfaces for Linux, will release 
| version 3.0 of their desktop environment and 
| they are promising "big user-visible 
| changes".

Gnome 3 Usability Hackfest

,----[ Quote ]
| As the GNOME 3.0 approaches, the GNOME
| Community is going to hold a Usability
| Hackfest in London from feb 22-26. Those
| who are not aware about the usability
| project, it aims to make GNOME appearance
| more efficient and pleasant to the users.
| In this hackfest, they are planning to work
| and improve the design and usability of
| some new GNOME 3.0 components.


GNOME Revamps and Renews Outreach Program for Women

,----[ Quote ]
| The approach? Think Google Summer of Code --
| complete with internships, mentors, and
| sponsors -- with an emphasis on team
| contributions rather than stand-alone
| projects.
| GNOME ran a similar outreach program in
| 2006, and received one hundred applications
| within two weeks. Because funds are (always)
| limited, great projects (and talent) had to
| be turned away -- but Google was so was
| impressed by the proposals, it funded three
| additional projects. The 2006 Women's
| Outreach Program had six participants, but
| organizers are tentatively planning on five
| participants this season.
