Gnome "Gnome 3 has received a lot of disapproval of late, from the Gnome foundation being charged with not taking care of its users, or losing mindshare, to Gnome 3 itself being an unusable mess. I've been using Gnome 3 myself for a few months to sort the truth from the fiction, and to try and understand just how the Gnome foundation expects their newest shell to be used. I will end with some thoughts on how Gnome 3 can be improved. The review will require a fairly lengthy preface, however."

GNOME 3 is not supposed to be the evolution of GNOME 2: making people realize that is it's biggest challenge.


I don't think the problem is people thinking Gnome 3 is an evolution of Gnome 2. It clearly isn't. The problem many people have with Gnome 3 is that it simply isn't what they want.

It would be good if the people who don't like Gnome 3 (Shell) stop paying attention to it. It's never going to be anything like Gnome 2. That part is dead and gone. It would also be good if the Gnome 3 (Shell) using people stopped telling other who don't like it, to just give it a chance. They did and it's like Brussels Sprouts, you either like it or you don't.

But this will become one of those eternal fights, where the pro Gnome 3 people acuse the naysayers of being afraid of change and living in the past and where the anti Gnome 3 people acuse the opposition of adopting change for the sake of change and chasing the mobile paradigm...
