Testing the Gnome 3 Release Candidate

http://www.workswithu.com

If Gnome developers are to be believed, the desktop of the future arrived last week when the release candidate for Gnome 3 was made available.  My CPU needed a workout, so I recently compiled the new desktop and gave it a run.  Here's a look at the desktop environment that - like it or not - may soon be coming to a computer near you.

Deconstructing Nautilus and rebuilding it better

http://www.design-by-izo.com

There may well be some of you out there who are currently thinking, “It’s not that bad…” to which my response is: in terms of user interface, there are much better file managers available for GNOME than GNOME’s default file manager (two, off the top of my head: Thunar, default for the Xfce Desktop Environment and PCMan File Manager, or PCManFM).

http://itmanagement.earthweb.com

Despite all the talk about the mythical Year of the Linux Desktop, somewhere in the last few years, free software passed a milestone without anyone noticing.

http://blogs.gnome.org

It is targeted at a whole mess of real pains (both little jabs and big aches you barely know are there), and it solves them in elegant,gorgeous, functional ways.
