That certainly explains GNOME 3

Well, that certainly explains why RedHat is supporting GNOME 3, and why it sucks so much on desktop systems...

It's had a positive response over all actually and Redhat have been behind it a lot.

I wish Linux users would stop bashing DEs lately, it's really boring. Don't like KDE4, don't like GNOME Shell, oh 2 year later, oh it's not bad actually, I like it. It's the same old story, new DE comes out, some Linux user doesn't like it and uses another DE or asks to fork it.

I think Linux desktop is a dead horse and has been flogged so many times, even Microsoft are looking to the Cloud and web applications are not some bubble waiting to pop I don't think.

Maybe some people are like that, but I'm not.

I've used GNOME since the early 1.x days and I've felt it's got progressively worse, yes, even with 2.x.

I don't use KDE either.

I only tolerate GNOME 2.x because it's what's installed on my workstation and I spend most of my time in a terminal window.

Besides, when Linus Torvalds himself says it's a pile of crap, perhaps it's time to listen...
