I didn't get to sit through the Gnome session, but the KDE session sounds
3.5 is going to be a great step forward, making KDE 3.5 a killer desktop.
4.0 WOW!!! Forget everything you've learned about the graphical desktop in the
last 20 years. The desktop and the internet will become highly integrated.
The interface gets easier. File management goes away in favor of content
management (don't worry, you'll still be able to use file management tools
like you're used to, but content management will be the default.)
From what I've read on MS Longhorn, the windows desktop isn't going to really
change much. They're adding things like SVG (scalable vector graphics), file
thumbnails that look like files, transparency, etc. The general paradigm
hasn't changed, just adding eyecandy (stuff we've already got I might add.)
I think the new KDE paradigm will REALLY shake things up.
