Parent article: GNOME 3.4 released
Since hate mongering is running rampant here (as always when discussing anything about Gnome 3), let me be at least the lone voice in congratulating the Gnome team on this solid release. I look forward to using Gnome 3.4 in the coming months. It looks like a release in the right direction, fixing some issues and adding a bit more flexibility in the areas that were lacking.
As a former KDE3 user, who gave up on KDE with KDE4 and used various different WMs in the meantime (anything from XFCE to E17 to Unity), I finally found my home in Gnome 3. Gnome 3 has been like a breadth of fresh air in computing for me, fitting in with exactly the way I like my desktop to behave. It's brought a noticeable increase in productivity on my desktop, as well as the added bonus of being very pleasant to use.
