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.

Wow, time flies. I guess I was off... both by a large amount of time and in a bad way.

Ouch. People really have no excuse to be latching on to that thing.

Well, I liked it better than Mate, it worked better for me than Gnome2, and it allowed me to use a (for me) sane interaction model. Gnome 3.8 will be off-limits for me...
