I’m just so impressed by GNOME. I recently installed OpenSUSE Tumbleweed on an old laptop and the GNOME experience there is great. It’s almost like an operating system in and of itself. For me, that’s a good thing. It lets me explore different distributions, and use different distributions, while maintaining a consistent user experience across my machines.
Allan Day’s post (you might remember Allan from this interview) explains how this is possible.
