A few news from the front.
First. Plasma will be an official codename of KDE 4. Plasma – imho it’s a good brand. I’m getting more and more excited about this release. Not only because of features it’ll have, but because guys who’re working on it are doing exactly what I believe should be done. They’re talking and thinking about modern GUI in the same way I do. And they’re not in hurry. They want to make KDE 4.0 released before October 2006. Basing on amunt of work they’re doing in last two months, they’ll be ready with porting everything to QT4 in two, three months having a year of work on new abilities, UI polishing, usability and beauty.

Remember, it’s a work in progress… But all of them are flying around what I call beauty, usability and modern. Yeah! :>
Gnome 3: Exactly what I said, the same way KDE and MacOS are going. Great news! Once again – comparing to this, Longhorn seems to be boring…
