    Wondering how much big distributions will be there to showcase the GNOME 3.0 desktop as it is intended. Ubuntu won't get GNOME 3.0 until Ubuntu 11.10 and uses Unity as a shell and openSUSE has always heavily customized GNOME.

    Fedora 15 should be just as interesting as Ubuntu 11.04.

    It's kind of funny how Google choose the same drag-to-virtual-desktop-to-launch approach for Android 3.0 Honeycomb Tablet edition. I realy liked the Gnome 3 UI concept in the beginning, but it doesn't work so well for the classic desktop as I played with it. Maybe Gnome 3.0 will smooth the hard edges so hard that it makes it round

    But that probably isn't going to happen 'cus tht totaly won't be usable for John Doe

    Is there a distro that carries this version? Fedora? I think Arch Linux dev will start packaging version 3.0 once it hits beta status .

    I think Arch, Gentoo and the other rolling releasers are likely the ones to pick it up quickly. Not sure about F15 though.

    I have to confess I am a bit ambivalent. I kind of liked the version of Gnome Shell in F14 but think that the current development has regressed compared to that version. Workspace management got weirder and they dropped Places and Recent docs in the Activities overview.
