    How comes this gnome 3 excitement recently? In its early day this site was more than critical w.r.t to gnome 3.

    Gnome 3 still sucks. But I guess the fact that it's the only DE that can be useful on high dpi changes the game.

    Yeah, it sucks, but others suck more. XFCE is probably the only sane one, but it seems to be dead...

    Fedora 20 has improved font rendering by default compared to Fedora 19. On other distros you'd simply install infinality freetype patches or use freetype2-ubuntu.

    You're being sarcastic, right? Font rendering is probably the worst thing in Gnome.

    I seriously hope not. I think it's dormant since the XFCE devs are not thinking about reinventing the entire interface with each version.

    However, the mailing list archive's are dead (chromium says it redirects too much), blogs are not that alive and the last forum announcement was last year... hmmm :/
