So GNOME 3 was released. I don't know why, but my excitement levels were quite low, until today when I pushed myself into trying it out. Rather than installing the new version on top of some other distro running GNOME 2, I decided to get the intended experience by downloading one of the "official" systems on the GNOME 3 webpage. There were two options: openSUSE and Fedora. As I haven't checked on openSUSE for quite a while now, I chose it.
I burnt it on a blank CD and fired it up. Result? See below!
But still, I found myself to actually like the interface, the fonts, the colors, the great "snap" features. Too bad it crashed when I wanted to check out the new messaging system. Also disappointing was the fact that there were so few protocols available.
So I went back to the official website and downloaded the Fedora version. Happily, the servers are quite fast and I didn't waste too much time, as this was an even worse fail.
O well, I guess I'll wait for a decent distro to come out with the shiny new GNOME and then I will give it a proper look. Until then, be sure to check out my Android adventures.
