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."

"that is fundamental bad design"

Design is a matter of opinion. Unfortunately when you have designers and programmers talking to one another, the programmers internalise what the designers say as hard law. In reality it's more of a guide.

IMHO having these two modes -- one for "using" the desktop, and the other for "controlling" it, seem fairly natural, but then I'm a vi guy. I've never understood Macs, they've always been strange and mysterious and I couldn't ever get my work done on one, so your proclamations of "the right way" don't really sit well with me.
