Gnome "Gnome 3 has received a lot of disapproval of late, from the Gnome foundation being charged with not taking care of its users, or losing mindshare, to Gnome 3 itself being an unusable mess. I've been using Gnome 3 myself for a few months to sort the truth from the fiction, and to try and understand just how the Gnome foundation expects their newest shell to be used. I will end with some thoughts on how Gnome 3 can be improved. The review will require a fairly lengthy preface, however."

"Originally this was a UI thing of other applications "pulling focus" from the one you're working on, but it's going deeper into even showing you things that you shouldn't care about right now so you don't get into addictive behaviour patterns like constantly checking your email.


IANAD, but if you have a problem like that you could be suffering from OCD or worse, tourettes. While I doubt fullscreen apps will help with your condition, please seek professional help.

Just to be clear, I was not attempting to attack the parent comment. I have mild OCD and have have suffered from it not knowing or understanding what it was. I have seen worse cases from other people at work and would always advise anyone having such behavioural problems to seek help.
