Gnome Remember back when GNOME and KDE dominated Linux desktops? Seems like a long time ago, doesn't it? Yet it was only three years ago, in April 2011, that GNOME 3 was released. Its radically redesigned interface shook up everyone. Some eagerly adopted it. Others left GNOME.

In this brief review I take a fresh look at GNOME today, as it's currently distributed in several popular Linux distributions.

i would really suggest these changes
*** much better menu than one provided with shell
https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/608/gnomenu/
+ disable hot corner in preferences (it is darn annoying, at least for me)

*** once you enable gno-menu dash is simply redundant clutter since same thing is more accessible from menu
https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/805/hide-dash/

enabling app menu in csd is another nice change

now, if i only found one working extension for 3.12 that hides atrocity called AppMenu in top bar which never worked as it should... gnome wouldn't even be bad if i discount how much worse games perform when i run gnome-shell as window manager.
