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."

Yeah, I'm pretty sure someone said the same thing about WIMP years ago...

First of all, it's harsh to judge like this unfinished software, secondly that doesn't prove current window management paradigm is better, maybe what's happening is that you and your wife spent a considerable time of your lives using one paradigm and unconsciously will reject anything different from that because it will have to spend an unnecessary amount of time getting used to something new.

See, some people hate new things, understandably, but there are also people who likes new things, and if we all keep technology halted because some people don't like these new things, what's going to happen to human society?

I myself, despite not liking very much this Gnome Shell, appreciate the effort Gnome guys are putting in trying new concepts, even if they fail, because if no one tries, how we will improve?
