GNOME 3.0: Evolution, Not Revolution
No Drastic Changes, No Really
May 12, 2010
When I asked Stormy Peters, the executive director of the GNOME Foundation, where to go for answers, she directed me to Vincent Untz. A director of the GNOME Foundation and one of the senior members of the GNOME Release Team, Untz is better positioned than almost anyone to offer an overview of the project from both a general and a technical perspective.
The release last March of GNOME 2.30 marks the end of a series of releases that dates back to June 2002. Asked to characterize the GNOME 2 series, Untz described it as "an evolution rather than a revolution. If you compare GNOME 2.30 to GNOME 2.28, for example, you'll see small differences. But if you compare GNOME 2.30 to 2.12, say, there's a huge world of difference between the two, and that's what most people don't see."
