Gnome "I'm writing to inform you that the release team discussed Drop or Fix Fallback Mode yesterday. We've come to the conclusion that we can't maintain fallback mode in reasonable quality, and are better off dropping it." Gnome-fallback has been my refuge, as I find both Unity and Gnome 3's shell unusable. Yes, we have been warned this would happen. I thought the cost of maintaining gnome-panel would be so low that it might never need to happen. But as it appears, it is deemed necessary. As for me, I'm bound for something Qt, as I am very angry at Gnome for abandoning its 'classic' users.

You once were the best when you knew what a desktop was.

Good question. A better one would be "what is a chair?"

For me, Trinity Desktop Environment is the only viable desktop. Yes the GUI looks a bit dated (like XP) but at least the basics of desktop computing have been met. I hope Timothy and his team port the whole desktop to Qt4 while keeping/reimplementing the existing functionality of the current TDE.

not to mention that when installed bare, it just consume about ~60MB (tried it with opensuse 12.x KDE 3.x version).

Holly shit! ;)
