The new distros are rolling out, and for Gnome users some big changes are coming. 

I have installed Ubuntu 11.04 and am using their new Unity interface, and actually like it.  There are definitely some bugs but hopefully will get ironed out pretty quickly.  This is a nice looking interface.  The other distros are starting to ship Gnome 3, which looks nice in screenshots but I haven't actually tried it out yet.  Anyone else used it?

Expecting to see the Gnome 3 desktop when Fedora 15 is released at the end of this month.  Will give it a try then.

I've downloaded Ubuntu 11.04 twice but each time the CHECKSUM failed.  Screenshots look pretty cool.
