I'll just go out there and say that the press release to me is indicative of the project: way too much time and effort going into polish and presentation and not enough into things that matter. Maybe that's a personal preference, but when I see a pig with too much makeup on I start to wonder if it's really just a pig.

That said, it feels mean to criticize them for spit and polish when so many people agree that Linux software needs more spit, polish, and attention to detail. Guess my complaint is that Gnome now consists of too many people working methodically on the color of the bikeshed and not enough people worrying about if the bike rides at all.

I have avoided Gnome3 like the plague. But I'm not hugely enamored of KDE4 this week either - it keeps crapping out on me. I find refuge in Windowmaker, the only environment that seems to be dependable and non-annoying.

I've largely started using xfce instead of Gnome or KDE(Plasma or whatever they just renamed it). I think XFCE has what I want, and I've not had any issues with it yet.
