    Now when can I expect this in my Intrepid Ibex repositories, mmm?

    Mandatory puns:

    "Glad to see Linux really putting it's best foot forward in the GUI department."

    "The new Gnome is a feet of software engineering."

    "Maybe I'll revert from Kubuntu to Ubuntu, dip my toe in and see what it's like."

    "I hope the new version doesn't have a much bigger footprint."
