Linux When GNOME did its version 3 and Ubuntu came up with Unity, the popularity of Linux Mint sky-rocketed, because they stuck with GNOME 2.32. The Mint team has been working on their next version for a while now, and today, they first unveiled what they're working on. There's good news - the team is working on making GNOME 3 likeable. Their question for this release: "How do we make people like Gnome 3? And what do we provide as an alternative to those who still do not want to change?"

No, expose really sucks, look at this:

This is my typical workplace, notice how all the windows looks very similar, and every time i open/close one, their order changes. It takes me a while to glance and realize which one do i need. I tried this for a few weeks and simply couldn't get used to it, then went back to Unity.

When I presented my scenario to Gnome developers, they told me it's my fault for not organizing them into desktops.

So, instead of a simple dock with 6 clear icons, their alternative is to use confusing expose-style previews, and forcing me to think of a sceheme to organize my apps into separate desktops.

Gnome developers have a really strange idea of simplicity..
