GNOME 3.0 = Tabs!

It seems that the GNOME community has finally reached the long-awaited wide consensus about the future direction for the project. It’s all about tabs!

We’ve been discussing the issue here at GUADEC and it seems that many guys really agree this is the path we want to follow. I am pretty sure the guys from the release team will just support it as well, as all the community is so excited by the new stuff that is happening that we really don’t want to stop the effort now.

Also, it seems that GTK+ will help us by providing a cool API for that, so let’s just make it happen!

Sorry but I can’t tell if this is a joke or if it’s serious… More smileys needed!

The 1st of April was a long time ago… (I hope you didn’t notice).

In some cases it seems useful (empathy maybe nautilus) – but others are not. I enjoyed that GNOME use SDI.

I understand that GNOME doesn’t have enough ideas about its future, but introducing tabs everywhere, even where they are not needed seems stupid to me.

This tab-frenzy has to stop.
