  • Gnome Foundation has released Gnome 3.0

    Hi its good to know that Gnome 3 has been released. These are the steps to install Gnome 3:
    1.Grab the ISO image based on Open SUSE or Fedora:
    1.Pros: No need to replace your Gnome 2.x in Ubuntu 10.10
    2.Cons: Need to install another distro that stays away from your Ubuntu 10.10 installation.
    3.You can get the ISO image from here. Then place it on a CD or your USB stick and enjoy the Gnome flavour!
    2.PPA for Ubuntu 11.04
    1.Pros: Enables to try Gnome 3 from your own installed Ubuntu or in top of your Gnome 2.x
    2. Cons: Your current Gnome 2.x might get bloated and you will feel why I'm using this as my default one since Ubuntu is shipping Unity from 11.04!
