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."

That problem is that the desktop is MINE, not theirs.

Then why don't you clone the git repository and start coding your self?

Because the idea that I should have to learn to code to customize my desktop is mind-numbingly stupid?

The Gnome3 team is the George Lucas of desktop UI.

I agree with you, is a lot easier to just talk trash than to learn to do something productive.

And it's reasoning such as yours, that I believe Gnome3 seems to be such a failure. Of course the developers do the hard labor in an open source project. But without the userbase, there wouldn't be donations, nor distros and corporations that would invest in paid developers to keep the project going.

We, the users and devs, did. They are called Mate and Cinnamon. This is exactly the attitude that got Gnome into their current mess, with users and devs fleeing and forking. When a single set of decisions spawns two completely separate projects, you obviously aren't listening to your users.

If your problem is solved, then why are you still whinning?, MATE and Cinammon are not making you happy?
