Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

The KDE devs don't know how to design good user interfaces. To them, number of features and buttons equals quality. Their UI design is ugly as well, looks like something made for kids. What's with those huge ugly icons in the panel? They look just like they did in 1999.

Oh yes ... the KDE devs still don't understand the idea of contrast in design ...

The task bar is barely readable. Slightly Dark grey on medium grey ... seriously?
