GNOME 3.0 Progress: GNOME Shell, Mutter Updates
Phoronix: GNOME 3.0 Progress: GNOME Shell, Mutter Updates
GNOME 2.28 will be released next month, but after that, the core focus among these free software desktop developers will turn to working on GNOME 3.0. Many GNOME developers have already been devoting some work towards GNOME 3.0, particularly in the areas of Mutter, Zeitgeist, and GNOME Shell, considering all of the work that's ahead...
I wonder why they don't release it in first of April

Reason: forgot to write "release"
Come on, it's waaaaay to soon to just dismiss it as a failure. I'm personally really excited to see how gnome 3.0 turns out.
One of the biggest complaints I hear is about the "extra" click on the Activities bar. That's not right. You only have to move your mouse to the far upper left corner and it opens. Regardless, it's still not finished.
Would be nice with a live-cd for trying G3 out. Does such a thing exist yet?
(cough) Screenshots (cough)
My apologies then. I have no problem with real criticism, but the (insert DE here) fanboys can get annoying.

It's pretty rough, but it's worth it to give it a run. If anything, just to get an idea of where these guys seem to be heading.
