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."

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.

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

In fact, I would argue that you could take his exact quote and it pretty much nails the GNOME project's stance when it comes to their new baby "GNOME 3" vs. the traditional desktop...

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

In other words, "you will enjoy the GNOME 3 environment we've given you, or don't use it. Goodbye."
