Gnome 3 Will Be Amazing

February 24, 2010

Today, we had a breakthrough; the boldest, baddest synthesis for a desktop we have ever hit upon. For a desktop redesign with a 6 hr genesis it is relatively concrete, its not handwavy, its not buzzword-y, its not taillight chasing. It is targeted at a whole mess of real pains (both little jabs and big aches you barely know are there), and it solves them in elegant,gorgeousfunctional ways. Could I write any more bold?

If this pans out, Gnome 3 (esp 3.2, 3.4, 3.6 as the boldness is refined) could be an extremely influential and compelling release.

Hype hype hype my little doves.

As with all things with a concrete target, this design is both huge and small! We don’t claim to have changed the direction of computing forever…. but we hope that this desktop will feel more transparent, more effortless, you’ll stay focused better, yet still understand what’s going on better. And what else do you expect of the core functions of your desktop?

This may amount to a bigger improvement in deep interactions with the UI than any desktop OS in the last decade can boast (now this isn’t really touching apps, so they’ll still be what they are). You will move windows with your mind (no seriously, with your mind: we hope this will make switching window, using menus and all sorts of other tasks subconscious in the same way as drinking from a coke can falls below the notice of your attention; a subconscious physical act not a mental act requiring focus).

If 25% of this design works out half as well as we hope, you will see it copied in Windows and OS/X.

Its not pie in the sky, its not research…. And I’m not going to tell you any specifics in this post. :-) Sorry… :-(

I have a good reason for being a tease: we’re tired from the design sprint. And we want your first look to make at least a little sense. But I had to say something because this morning was so much fun! And we’ll be giving you mockups very soon! Days and hours, not weeks! Plus: seeing is going to make a lot more sense than explaining (even then I bet it will be fuzzy: using is believing! so don’t get too jumpy if the first look isn’t ‘aha!’… long term use by demanding users is a big big deal and not designed for often enough). Do you love the crackrock? I sure do. Lets smoke a big ol’ bowl together, eh?

This is an exciting road. Its going to have big bumps.

I am excited. I am really, really excited. This should scare you. It scares me. But I hope you’ll bear with us; and by bear I mean “help us carry the load”. Help us make this real! Help us refine the bad parts! Help us eliminate the bad sub-designs! Help us shoot flames from our eyes and launch dragons from our missile tubes. Help us break granite with our faces. Descend with us, little lambs, into the labyrinth of chasomagic.

This is it. The eagle has landed. Or it hasn’t. We’ll see. Its gonna be fun either way, so fire up your flamethrowers and don your asbestos murdercloaks.
