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.

I think Linus prefers it too.

I'm split between that and KDE/Qt, but I don't like the object disoriented obfuscation. Actually Qt isn't that bad, I use it as one of two good class libraries (the other is Apple's IOKit where things like CD, DVD, etc. and USB, Firewire extend SCSI).

Gnome is broken. The developers make strange, huge, arbitrary changes on a whim. I don't know why, only that everything breaks or is unfamiliar. I can't get wireless (Network-mis-Manager, or even freaking bluetooth PINs) to work properly.
