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.

I'm sorry but Tiling window managers aren't the end all for a lot of people.

Yes, they might work well for terminal windows and/or people with a lot of screen real estate, but I couldn't possibly use one of these on a 13" screen. At most I can fit two windows side by side (and definitely not a browser).

Sometimes I wonder what people with tiling window managers do with their computers...
