It seems that Gnome 3.0 will be released in march 2011. And will not be released in september as planned. So its the second time they delay it.
I think that its not so good news for distributions like Ubuntu. KDE 4.5 will come out before Gnome 3.0http://www.omat.nl/2010/04/12/kde-4-5-release-schedule-ready/
So I suppose Pardus and other distributions will get a better chance to compete with Windows 7 or Mac OS.
I use Ubuntu myself sometimes, but I must admit that the Gnome desktop can feel very old compared with the new KDE4.4 desktop.
Similar to KDE 3.5 if you compare them.
I wonder how long Ubuntu can be nr:1 in distrowatch with this kind of delays? Maybe PCLinux OS or OpenSUSE be the next leaders?
Well I guess we will wait and see.
