Gnome Not even GNOME itself could ignore the GNOME 3 criticism for much longer. "As part of the planning for the DropOrFixFallbackMode feature, we've decided that we will compile a list of supported gnome-shell extensions. This will be a small list, focused on just bringing back some central 'classic' UX elements: classic alt tab, task bar, min/max buttons, main menu. To ensure that these extensions keep working, we will release them as a tarball, just like any other module."

Plus, I don't trust them any more. Going to update Cinnamon to the 1.6 version, looks like a much better option to me.

Yep. I've already moved on, for the same reason you mentioned: trust, and the fact that they tried to kill it off in the first place.

Don't let the door hit your ass in your way out.

This is exactly the same attitude that is literally killing GNOME.

They've been at it for quite a few years and finally they've got their wish and now its not exactly what they thought the nirvana of no more power users was.

In fact, GNOME is pretty much a 1 Bus Accident project at the moment. One more screw-up on these kinds of things and its done.

Even GTK will probably be forked and move on.
