    oooh, i've never managed to keep a linux OS very long - probably because i miss some of the programs on Windows too much haha.
    Anyway, Now we've got NetBook, i'm giving Fedora 15 a go on it... downloading at the moment

    tbh I always thought of XP as Win2k's fat and ugly step-sister. But that's just personal preference.

    I've also never liked GNOME even in the early 1.x days. But again, personal preference. However in that instance I could at least relate to why others did like it

    Are they going this way with the interfaces to maybe eventually goto tablet form ?

    I always liked gnome as it was reasonably lightweight and I could change it a lot.

    The second I saw gnome3 I moved to XFCE, then got the custimisation bug and moved to openbox.

    I really can't stand the look of Unity or gnome shell. Look too much like ubuntu netbook edition to me.

    You can install it from windows thanks to Ubuntu as that is an Ubuntu thing

    Looking forward to trying it, will probably end up trying Unity as well.

    I hope finally to see the back of the niggly little bugs that plague the current GNOME, I still get occasional panel applet problems e.g. Rubbish Bin fails to start and asks to be deleted.

    I for one can't wait to give Gnome 3 a real try once Fedora 15 comes out. Personally I am also a fan of minimizing windows, but I won't ditch new ideas until I have given them a chance - there's loads of nice features too!

    looks like a few useful features i like the im feature looks rather good looks like i might be ditching joilicloud on my laptop then
    I never got the point of jolicloud, it is basically Ubuntu with a new launcher slapped on top of it. You can do everything the same in Ubuntu.

    Agreed ...looks like its trying to jump on the Tablet kind of interface

    Looks like a kiddies Tonka phone.
    What is the modern thing against neat tidy text menus? Why do we have to have a degree in picture association before we can do anything? (I've just realised the answer to that)
    Windows is set to go the same way by all accounts.

    I'm the same, very lazy and never actually close anything. Would certainly take some getting used to not having minimize
