Useless thread and obviously a Gnome hater. Go lobby somewhere else. This release has two features that most people have been dying for. XRandR, and Tabbed file browsing. You can't deny it, it's a clear way to view multiple windows inside of one, and it makes copying and pasting 10 times easier on the GUI front. Yes I'll admit the commandline is slightly faster but people like GUI's and anything to make the GUI better is a vast improvement. While XRandR could have been done manually before without too much difficulty, it now can be done effortlessy, adding two features making Linux as a whole and all who use Gnome 2.24 that much more of a competitor to windows and macosx and desirable.
So no. This is not just an incremental upgrade. It's probably one of the best features Gnome has added in a long time.
