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'm not whining. I am perfectly happy watching Gnome slip into oblivion. Remember XFree86? They were THE X server for almost all distros. Look how quickly they were replaced. XFree86 is pretty much dead now. I will shed almost as many tears when I see Gnome gone too...*sniff*

You keep using the word "troll", but I'm not actually sure you know what it means.

So, in other words, you are nothing but a troll.


No, I just realize that the Gnome devs are so hard headed that they are not going to listen to reason. Otherwise they would have listened already and changed. As such, they are sowing the seeds of their own demise, as it were, in the software world. They have only themselves to blame.

To most of the Fan Boys of any product a "troll" is someone who doesn't agree with them.
