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."

I totally get the gnome3 criticism.
And I understand that quite a few users felt (betrayed is far too strong) but 'left out in the cold' and sought shelter in cinnamon, mate etc. and some people have switched allegiances to more 'lightweights' like XFCE - and that includes myself - - although more and more I'm only using linux on headless boxes , but thats a different story.

I think this move -while only a small gesture in some ways- is pragmatic and will be enough of a little compromise for quite a few people. Took a while mind


Nope. Too Little Too Late. This doesn't adress anything, it's just a cheap bandage over a festering wound.
