Well, actually I have coded more than "hello worlds" but admittedly poorly. I don't deny that - I'm not a programmer and I don't pretend to be one. All you did was break out the usual "code it yourself argument".
You also get me wrong: I love GNOME and use it happily, but it does have it's flaws. The fact the 2.0 series have existed for 3 years without a proper menu editing solution is appalling. Would I be calling Microsoft out if they shipped Windows without a menu editor? You bet I would and so would you.
I'll say it again: 2.0 should not have shipped without a decent menu-editing solution, let alone 2.2, 2.4 and so on. The GNOME team have let themselves down badly on this front.
