    I enjoy trying the gnome 3.x live usb spins but the fact wireless (for my hardware) doesn't work out the box is a real barrier to testing these images.

      Most of that is nonsense social networking brain rot bullshit.
      The only one of those that is even remotely interesting, is the "nautilus" changes..... however, there is no indication if they're fixing something (unlikely), or making it worse (most probable).

        So.. just cosmetic BS and no usability improvements. I miss those days when KDE had some real competition

              well gnome is dead been dead since they dropped old layout. Just anoether toy DE for developers to have fun, couse is nice inventing new stuff like reinventing the wheel when is no need. Kde didnt change their desktop paradigm they just rewrote everything, i still have the same bottom panel still can have old classic look in the menu, and after years of gnome 2 usage Kde.4.8 has come to have same CPU and mem usage as old gnome 2. But well linux is choise so their is a place for everyone to coexist even for the crapy Gnome3 .

                      the article doesn't mention one of the best changes in Gnome 3.6: there will be a power off button in the menu by default - not necessary to press the Alt key anymore
                      also planned are huge improvements to the Orca screenreader, a new font viewer application, improvements to app menus and probably a new note application (accoding to this german article: Designteam forciert App-Menüs für Gnome 3.6), and a design overhaul for some applications.

                      I'm curious about the new note application. But IMHO gnote is already good enough and the best note application I know

                        So basically: if a feature doesn't work well with touch it get dumped. I wonder if the developers write code on touch screens as well. It doesn't sound like they can think beyond that use case any more.

                          As much as I prefer gnome 3 over gnome 2, and am baffled by some of the hate, I have to admit these modifications to nautilus seem to be designed merely to irritate people.

                          Tree view isn't on by default. There is no reason for tablet users to get confused. Lets hope is just another silly move they u-turn on; as they seem to have eventually done in adding a power off.
