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.

Member since:

The second link mentions that Unity, LXDE, XFCE will be affected since they reuse some of the fallback components. When the whole Gnome3 mess erupted I initially tried XFCE for a while, but missed a number of important things, so I went for fallback. Now I'm going to avoid GTK stuff a whole lot more, so XFCE won't be my first stop.
