Gnome Honest question. Do you think the GNOME project is as healthy today as it was, say, 4 years ago? Benjamin Otte explains that no, it isn't. GNOME lacks developers, goals, mindshare and users. The situation as he describes it, is a lot more dire than I personally thought.

If one created an extension that would provide a 3 top level menu with a bottom taskbar just like GNOME 2 was, under GNOME Shell, it would help to keep the people interested. There are some extensions that can mimick menus and so on, but they're not the same as GNOME 2. I am talking about a full clone of the GNOME 2 top level menus: Applications - Places - System. Of course we would also want to have all the window title buttons back and our window list at the bottom.


That is what Cinnamon in Linux Mint is all about.

Only problem with that is you need to rewrite the Gnome Shell extensions...ugh!
