Gnome Not even GNOME itself could ignore the GNOME 3 criticism for much longer. "As part of the planning for the DropOrFixFallbackMode feature, we've decided that we will compile a list of supported gnome-shell extensions. This will be a small list, focused on just bringing back some central 'classic' UX elements: classic alt tab, task bar, min/max buttons, main menu. To ensure that these extensions keep working, we will release them as a tarball, just like any other module."

They still just don't get it. While they are caving to some pressure, they aren't really changing the core problem. That problem is that the desktop is MINE, not theirs. If I want to change the way it looks, I should be able to. I don't give a crap about their branding, or their identity, or anything else they think. They can ship whatever they want, but if I can't make it usable, I am gonna go with something else. Plus, who the heck wants to code against an arbitrarily moving target?
