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 have no idea what they are going to do next. Until recently I thought they would simply deploy an improved Gnome Fallback-Mode and I was really surprised they let it die so easily.

Maybe they just don't care about the user experience and will keep shipping their rusty version of Gnome 2 for the next decade? If so, including a new-ish version of Xfce as an alternative to it sounds like a good idea.
