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."

Like I said above, I don't care that they changed or progressed. But when the devs go out of their way to make sure you can't change the desktop from the way they want it, then they are going too far. There is no reason why Gnome couldn't ship the desktop the way they want it, but still make it easy for people to change it to their needs. Instead, they did the opposite, to preserve branding. That way you always know a Gnome desktop when you see it.
