Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

Exactly but more to the point, complaining about such superficial things is kind of like complaining about the color of the upholstery on the seats of a Boeing 747 jet liner when they screwed up and forgot to include wings.

No it isn't.

Even if it was ... I am still allowed to bitch about the seats not being the right colour, whether the wings are on or off ... rubbish seats are still rubbish seats.

Except that one spends far greater time in applications than on the desktop shell. If the applications are an inefficient waste of space then that is clearly a problem.

Also I never said it was the only problem but it certainly irritates me the most about gnome V2 and V3.

One begins to build up the suspicion that they have so much space due to their inherent feature culling complex.
