Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

if you need so much flexibility that you want no panel (which you can't do with windows or osx), you can probably figure out how to install a different de. If not, there's always xubuntu.

This to me is the funniest argument (and the most prevalent) against gnome 3 and unity: "not customizable enough", because really, if you like customization that much, you're free to customize the DE you use, the OS you use, the distro you use, and even the source code if you like. Why do customizers complain about defaults? It really makes no sense.
