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.

Why do all UI projects feel it necessary to change a design proven by 20 years use (Win 8 UI, Unity, GNOME) ?

UIs 20 years ago can be seen more different than the change now...

And Unity seems to work out fine ( http://www.osnews.com/thread?541935 ), also in the sense that it better utilises widescreens.
