Gnome "GNOME 3.4 introduces a range of new features. A new document search facility allows quick access to content stored both on your device and online. Smooth scrolling means that moving through content is slick and graceful. New application menus, which are located on the top bar, provide a useful way to access application options and actions." And a lot more.

Been on fluxbox for about 7 years, never needed anything else. Downloaded a gNome 3 live cd to see what all the ruckus was about and thought what for? Fluxbox keeps working and is fine/tunable over time so that I never get hit with these stupid fads.

100% linux user who does a hellavalot on his machine and managed to miss all the frustration and whining over fad UI decisions made by fools trying to prove their manhood in the computing wilds ;)

If you wanna play with toys, buy one of those sanitary pads that woman use, errr, IpAd I think they're called. Otherwise grow up and become an Adult and use tools that get the job done with minimal pain ;)
There are many to choose from, including what I use, as well as others mentioned here.

Linux the land of choice and some damn good ones at that!

The choices you talk about prevents users to use Linux, whatever that word means today. There's too much fragmentation, too many choices. It's like one religion tree with hundreds of denominations and sects. Choice is good however human beings have issues when they are approached with too many choices.

Fragmentation is a fallacy derived in your own head or a regurgitation of anothers idiotic thought patterns.

There are thousand's of dishes to chose from when I'm hungry, but I never seem to have a problem filling my belly with something yummy, even if it means combining some of those dishes to come up with something unique!

If you're a regimented computer user, then stick to windows or better still - MacinTossers. Linux is Linux, the ultimate in choice. Stop complaining it's something it's not and hopefully never will be!

Learn its true strengths and you won't see fragmentation but true power to do the hell you want, how you want it done ;)
