You can install Ximian Gnome... It comes with Red Carpet, a very useful
software to keep the system up to date easily.

The new beta version is the next generetion of the Gnome
Desktop/Plataform... It is really nice... and yes, its _not_
source/binary compatible with the actual plataform.

But there is a lot of work to port the present apps to the new
plataform, just like happened with Qt2 to Qt3 and KDE2 to KDE3.
