| When I was updating my system I realized 
| there were a lot of gnome packages to be 
| upgraded, my enthusiasm immediately rises, 
| gnome 2.30 was out.


A sneak peak at GNOME 3

,----[ Quote ]
| Now I will warn you that I am a fan of 
| GNOME. I understand that KDE did the same 
| thing when they re-invented their take on 
| the desktop. The difference is â the 
| innovation from KDE seemed more like a 
| âretooling with added featuresâ. GNOME 3 
| will be a milestone for the desktop. I have 
| head some people say it is too much like 
| the âiPhone interfaceâ. To those I have to 
| say âuse it firstâ. But no matter where you 
| stand, GNOME 3 is going to be different, 
| and this article will show you how to 
| install it and give you a first glance.


GNOME 2.30: Waiting for the Big Release

,----[ Quote ]
| GNOME 2.30 was originally intended to 
| coincide with GNOME 3.0 -- a massive 
| cleanup and rethinking of the popular 
| desktop. However, GNOME 3.0 is delayed for 
| at least another release, which leaves 
| GNOME 2.30 as most likely the last version 
| in a series stretching back almost a 
| decade.
| [...]
| On the other hand, 2.30 will probably be 
| the final version of the 2.0 series. For 
| those who were around for GNOME 2.0 back in 
| 2000, the 2.30 release stands as evidence 
| of how far GNOME in general and the free 
| desktop in particular have come in the last 
| decade in usability and design. If you do a 
| search for images of early GNOME releases 
| and compare the results with 2.30, you can 
| have no doubt that, although GNOME 
| sometimes tends to over-simplify, its 
| improvements over the last decade remain 
| unmistakable.



First Look: GNOME 2.30

,----[ Quote ]
| April Fools turned out to be a great day for
| Linux enthusiasts, as GNOME developers
| decided to offer them something to look
| forward to except getting punked and do a
| proper launch, and a pretty big one at that.
| GNOME 2.30 is now available for everyone and
| the final release of the 2.xx series is
| packing some serious punch and plenty of
| goodies for even the most demanding user.
