Graphics, User Interfaces In the commercial software world, user interfaces are generally designed by one group. Like Microsoft for Windows or Apple for Mac OS. Those desktop environments were designed by one company who did things like user testing and statistical analysis to try and make the desktop they thought would work best. Linux is different. Large groups definitely DO perform user testing and statistical analysis, but one group can also say "Here's what we want" and, if they have the ability to code it, their idea comes into being. It's pretty amazing, when you think about it. Linux lets people create what they want. If you don't like what's out there, fork it! Or start from scratch! You're in control!

There still is a fallback mode i GNOME3 which closely mimics GNOME2. If MATTE people were less ignorant they would better go improve it rather develop a clone for those who are unable to locate "Forced Fallback mode" button.


You're nothing but a Gnome 3 troll who's never actually use the utterly worthless fallback mode. It actually acts nothing like Gnome2.

it's a useless piece of crap just like the rest of Gnome 3
