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.

I think Linus prefers it too.

No, he doesn't. He prefers Gnome 3:

"Torvalds has switched back to GNOME 3 as he reckons the desktop GUI's problems are being fixed. “It has been getting less painful. They have extensions that are still too hard to find. You can make your desktop look almost as good as it did two years ago.”"

I guess you're a bit outdated. Linus is using KDE currently, he had enough of GNOME already.

Nowhere does he say he's had enough of GNOME. All he's saying is that he's trying KDE.
