Gnome The future of GNOME - an interesting subject. GNOME 3 has been out and about for a while, and it hasn't exactly been a smashing success. One of the efforts to take GNOME to the next level is what the team refers to as GNOME OS - but in reality, it's a set of improvements to GNOME that are just as interesting to GNOME-the-desktop-environment.

To really fix gnome they should also focus hard on making gnome devices like laptops.

Actually the only smart thing to do is for everyone to focus on building a gnome car!! Yes with gnome integrated deeply. Yeah.

Don't bother fixing the 20 deal breaker bad UX decisions they've made because that certainly has nothing to do with gnome's crashing user base.

P.S. - Please don't reply with "well I like it". Good for you, really, good for you. I'm expressing my distaste and I know I don't talk for everyone but acknowledge the fact that gnome has in fact seen a mass exodus. So you might like it, but it is clear many (probably most) people do not like it at all.

Honestly for me the biggest deal breaker is their handling of multiple desktops and monitors. I'd venture to guess that most people who like it, simply don't use more than 1, maybe 2 desktops because the tablet focused desktop handling is just plain unusable if you regularly have many windows open and you want to keep them organized.
