February 27th, 2012 by elizar

I could not remember the first time I ever used the first ever desktop environment in the Linux OS.

Back in the pre- Fedora dys when Redhat was still freely available, two well known desktop available to linus was the K Desktop and Gnome.

I am in love with Gnome then and I beilive ot is still the one i prefer today, even though I an no longer active in the Linux community.. Solaris grab all my attention.

Now, Gnome 3.4 Beta 1 is almost out…
