A Quick Tour of GNOME Shell

Filed under
Software

I did decide to do a quick tour of the GNOME Shell, one of the integral parts of the GNOME 3 series, scheduled to be coming out in 2010 or so.

Note the Activity menu and the specially-capulated notification area. Good stuff. I al so like the stylized panel, but I don’t like it at the top. When openSUSE adopts GNOME 3, I’d like to see it moved to the bottom.


Windows being created from the Application Launcher
