    Phoronix: What's Coming Up For GNOME 3.2?

    Last week marked the end of the feature proposal for GNOME 3.2, for the first major update to the GNOME3 desktop. The GNOME 3.2 release schedule has the final release set for the end of September. In this article is a list of some of the features that were brought up for GNOME 3.2...

    This work is inspired by Apple's Time Machine back-ups under Mac OS X.
    Please. Stop. Now.

      Even the DejaDup page refers to Time Machine as the "competition".

        Or just go to their backup "design" page and look at what the screenshots show under "Relevant Art".... http://live.gnome.org/Design/SystemSettings/Backup

          I believe this could be very neat in combination with btrfs rollbacks.

            Yup, haters just love to hate, facts be damned.

              An easy to use backup tool as part of the DE would be great. But a little less Mac OS X inspiration and a little more originality in the design wouldn't hurt IMHO.

              Well, I guess it's better than KDE ripping-of the Windows 7 UI

                I so glad I ditched Gnome.

                Sorry for trolling, but what a bunch of crap these new features are.
                Gnome devs just live in the clouds and don't understand at all the word "usable".
                And they love the Mac.

                    I think GNOME 3 as a platform is quite interesting. Good thing Ubuntu sees it as such and did not go forward with the mess that is GNOME Shell.

                      I'm probably in the minority in here, but I really like where Gnome and Ubuntu are going. Really nice to see the linux desktop advancing and changing so much after such a long time of stagnation. Ok, so KDE 4 also made a big splash, but its bugginess will be the end of the project eventually, unless they dedicate more time polishing all the little details.

                        Yep, it will be a great feature.

                            Better don't look at gnome bug tracker then.

                              Bugs happen.

                              Gnome-shell has shown a massive level of polish for a initial .0 release.

                              The majority of doubters are people that:
                              1. Have no intention of using it in the first place and just like to spout bullshit and troll online. Or are morons that think that KDE vs Gnome is a zero sum game and irritating people with their pissy attitude is somehow benefiting their desktop.

                              2. Are people that used Alpha/Beta versions and don't realize how to get it up to date or haven't tried it in a while.
