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."

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

Sure its easy to talk trash...

But it you want to contribute to the project and possibly help them get back to what made them so well used... You'll have *MUCH* better luck and fun talking trash about them... since they ignore sane patches and have a HUGE case of "NIH" and "NIMBY".

The whole point of Open Source with licenses like the GPL is Give Back... not forking and duplicating effort.

That's why I don't mind paying for software. At least then, I feel like I have the right to bitch as a paying customer, instead of being told, 'well, if you don't like how shitty the software is, why don't you fix it yourself?'

How do you know he isn't productive already? Possibly in one of the many fields YOU are not productive in?
