Similarly, what's wrong with the modal design?

What's "wrong" is that it's different.
Everyone always want the OSS desktop to evolve but, you know, only in ways that does not really impact them.

I find that amusing. When things don't change, people bitch about stagnation. When things do change, people bitch about the changes. Major software projects can't win for loosing.

Around here, especially; the OS News SNR has gotten pretty terrible.

Thats not true. There are plenty of projects (most I would think) that don't have this problem. But when you take a project with an established user base, disregard everything they want/ask for, and change things in a completely illogical way, then yes, people get upset.
