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 a mouse click costs you 5 seconds, then you obviously haven't learned to use it well enough, and thus underestimate its usefulness.

I have a scenario here (for people doing software development). Let's say you are at the middle of programming and have modified 10 files. For the next commit, you are only going to commit 2 of those 10 files. You do not know the paths of the 2 files off the top of your head, but you can tell straight away by glancing at the hg/git/svn status output (or whatever your IDE shows to you). What would be your workflow, without using a mouse?
