Gnome Here is a list of usability issues concerning GNOME. "Some time ago I decided to note everything that didn't make sense to me while using Hoary/Breezy with GNOME, or what I thought could be implemented better. I found the time to go through the list again, clarifying somt things and writing some use cases where each problem applies. Some of these might seem very nitpicky, but details are important too."

And obviously there are lots more of us that are pretty happy

Either that or you've got yourself in the attitude of seeing everything through some spectacular rose-tinted glasses. And no, there can't be that many of you considering that you're using consistently the second most popular open source desktop.

if we've developed this vast secret conspiracy to strike down any negative views of gnome found on the internet. heh...

That would be many of the developers.

You actually believe those internet polls? Wasn't there a poll here some months ago that suggested GNOME was actually more popular.

Sorry, you can't use that old chestnut I'm afraid. What are we supposed to believe?

Wasn't there a poll here some months ago that suggested GNOME was actually more popular.

It was an OSNews one, and it really was useless. The poll was only open in parts of the world for very short periods of time, and was shut extremely fast. It wasn't like the desktop consortium one which was open for months, is a lot more stricly conducted and which KDE won convincingly. You're going to have a fairly hard time trying to seriously skew that one I'm afraid.
