Gnome "Gnome Shell 2.91.90 was released yesterday getting some fine adjustments according to the release announcement: 'This release just about concludes user interface changes anticipated before GNOME 3.0. The only significant change we expect after this release is to add a native network indicator based on NetworkManager 0.9.' Gnome Shell 2.91.90 brings new automatic workspaces, removed minimize and maximize buttons from window titlebars, a PolicyKit authentication agent and more."

GNOME Hell

I have converted my wife into using Linux, without too much issue. She's been using for over a year now. Her machine has Fedora installed, just like mine. Strangely enough she didn't find Windows 7 taskbar to be practical. Instead of that, it was either XP taskbar or GNOME 2.x taskbar.

Last night I proposed that she tried GNOME fricking Shell, which I have been hating for a while now, and that feeling doesn't want to change so soon.

Thinking on GNOME's Shells advocates' words, that this desktop is based on what's best for the user, to make life easier, I was glad that she absolutely hated GNOME Shell.

The whole "Activities" menu and the workspaces were a complete mess, not to mention that she complained hard about the lacking of a window list.

I don't think GNOME Shell is going to get there, and so Unity.
