Ok, I understand that you are very much used to your way of working; and simply cannot move on to a new desktop with a new behavior. Your resistance to new behavior is really making you frustrated. It's understandable.


"Way of working", you got it. My point is designers should implement necessary tools for users to implement their own work flow. Those tools have to be versatile or general enough so that most users can use them to get the job done in their own ways. However, Gnome 3 defines a work flow and forces users to stick to it. That is the problem. In fact, I am the kind of person who always ignores the details. So things like consistency of UI, positions of buttons, etc will be ignored. But most people cannot ignore the big things. In my case, the big thing is my work flow.
