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.

Love GNOME 3, but don't love the distros

.. that use it. I used to be mostly Red Hat (before the Enterprise Linux / Fedora split), but after having using Ubuntu on/off for 6.5 years, I've become accustomed to the ease of which Ubuntu sorts things out for me and I like the massive support community.

Fedora 15, on the other hand, feels like a beta release with very limited support, and the NVIDIA driver support is very poorly done. The installation still leaves the MESA OpenGL libraries as the default (causing crashes) and SELinux seemingly interferes with attempting to fix this.

I love GNOME 3 and consider it a much surer future bet than Unity, and so I hate that Ubuntu decided to go their own way here. Maybe we need a Gnobuntu.
