Summary

 < Day Day Up > 



In this chapter we have examined the basics of the GNOME user interface. We have explored its similarities with KDE. We also have looked at a variety of applications available for GNOME. This is critical because the interface is not of much use without powerful applications to run in it. At this point you should be comfortable with the GNOME interface. However, keep in mind that throughout most of this book we will be focusing on KDE.

This chapter also introduced you to several system tools that either ship only with GNOME and not with KDE or ship with both but were not previously explored. We examined a new system monitor and several small but very useful utilities, and finally we looked at desktop sharing in GNOME.
