Gnome "One of the things that the GNOME design crew have been focusing on recently is creating a new approach to application design for GNOME 3. We want GNOME applications to be thoroughly modern, and we want them to be attractive and a delight to use. That means that we have to do application design differently to how we've done it in the past."

RE: Small screens not welcome

So it sucks for big screens and small screens.

Don't confuse this with current Gnome - the current 3.x series works just fine on a big screen, but this idea of maximising windows by default is just absurd for such systems.

I've not tried G3 on a netbook - where does the wastage come from? The actual shell takes up very little space (just the top panel) - I'm guessing the problem is the excessive amount of padding in the default widget theme?
