If you tend to use Linux through a GUI and only use the command line to supplement your usage and are pretty sure the web was not meant to be viewed in text only with Lynx then a brand new desktop for Linux is good news. Gnome has hit version 3, with a few new features and some serious streamlining, some good and some strange. For instance re-sizing windows with your scroll wheel is interesting, removing the minimize and maximize buttons are odd.
"The developers behind the GNOME project have announced the official release of GNOME 3.0, a significant redesign of the open source desktop environment. The update introduces a new desktop shell that offers a streamlined window management workflow and a more modern look and feel. The new version also represents a major architectural overhaul, with many important enhancements to the GNOME platform’s technical underpinnings."
