Gnome "Theme development is a tedious and difficult task, and for the GTK devs to be so careless in breaking their API at every turn disrespects the many hours people put into making themes for it. [...] I was given to believe that this breakage stems from a Microsoft-like climate of preventing users from customizing their systems, and deliberately breaking the work of others so that your 'brand' is the best. Anytime I hear the word 'brand' being used in Linux, I know something valuable is being poisoned." I find the tone of this one a bit too harsh and overly negative at times, but his point still stands.

Dear dumb ass gnome developers:

The freshman software engineers in my college learn to ask for user requirements before they start coding. How about doing the same. There is no point wasting your time if no one wants to use the crap you produce. And your stupid bar across the top is a waste of space if I can't alter it. You fail at UI design.

Dear ignorant troll:

I use GNOME Shell just fine and I'm so productive with it, the fact that you don't share the same opinion doesn't mean we all dislike it.

Is called, "Get the facts 101" do they teach that in your college?
