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I guess you're a bit outdated.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

The article is from two days ago and mentions his KDE posting.

If you follow the threads, he just started KDE again when he wrote on November 2nd. The Reg article from the 7th is just way outdated in a weird way. I don't think he's gone back to Gnome3 after a week of KDE in spite of the prolific configuration options or the cartooniness (I agree with both).

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