Gnome "I'm writing to inform you that the release team discussed Drop or Fix Fallback Mode yesterday. We've come to the conclusion that we can't maintain fallback mode in reasonable quality, and are better off dropping it." Gnome-fallback has been my refuge, as I find both Unity and Gnome 3's shell unusable. Yes, we have been warned this would happen. I thought the cost of maintaining gnome-panel would be so low that it might never need to happen. But as it appears, it is deemed necessary. As for me, I'm bound for something Qt, as I am very angry at Gnome for abandoning its 'classic' users.

This has been known since almost... forever?

Seriously though, how is something that has been said so many months (a year or more maybe?) ago news-worthy? If GNOME users didn't already begin preparing to jump ship already, then... well, I can't say I feel sorry for them. This could be seen coming from miles away. I don't even remember the last time I used GNOME 2 (yes, 2... 3 is an atrocity, even with the legacy mode).

Anyone who jumped ship, if they didn't choose KDE, LDE or Xfce, probably switched to Cinnamon or the MATE Desktop. Those are the logical choices and the most readily available. Anyone who really thought GNOME 3 "fallback" mode was going to last and is still on it... well, tough luck.
