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.

Have you seen http://razor-qt.org/ as yet? Might be along the lines of what you're chasing.

Aye, I am aware of that, but it's still too raw, and it still takes too many cues from KDE. The theme needs a lot of work, for example, and judging from the screenshots the applications and settings use free space quite inefficiently.

I am interested in the project in general, though, and in general I have a good feeling about it. I could definitely see Razor-Qt becoming a high-class DE in the future, and I actually really hope it will do exactly that. Definitely a project worth keeping an eye on!
