Gnome GNOME 3.2 has been released. It's basically a collection of relatively small updates, improvements, and bug fixes. As whole, it's a pretty big upgrade, but there's nothing really that stands out to me - probably because I don't use GNOME3 myself so I really have no idea where it's lacking (if at all). Any GNOME3 users care to shine a light on this one?

I tried to use it, I tried to use it again, and just can't. For a power user, or just a user that needs to get serious work done, it is a disaster.


At least power users wont be afraid to try out some shell extensions. If you don't like how gnome3 work you can add a gnome2-like menu, or task bar, or why not a dock? But it seems you never bothered with that.

But then you know that you can get gnome3 to behave pretty much like gnome2. Just add the taskbar, menu and quick-launch bar. Yet you think it's a "disaster"? What's the problem with it?

You've got to be kidding. Those shell extensions are like putting band-aids over a festering wound. They're useless.

You're right about one thing. I'm not bothering with Gnome 3 anymore, since it's damn clear that the people behind don't give a damn about the people who prefer the way Gnome 2 did things.

In that case nej_simon, what is the point of GNOME 3 Shell's design if you replace the default UI? If you replace GNOME Shell 3's default UI with a GNOME2-like menu, then by definition, GNOME Shell's UI is a failure.
