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."

Gnome will probably not continue in its role if no one actually wants to use it

That is what you haters can't understand, that there are users who likes GNOME 3 and want to use it.

Are those Gnome3 fans outside of the Gnome Dev circle?

But seriously, What is the ratio of the Gnome3 fans verses detractors?

I believe that the Gnome3 project should have been more of a fork in itself aimed at the Tablet/touchscreen market as opposed to aiming for the mainstream Desktop arena.

Yes, I'm one of those.

But seriously, What is the ratio of the Gnome3 fans verses detractors?

There is no way to know, and honestly, I don't care.

Yes, they are: 14 year old Girls

They are using some type of Touch Tablet interface, since they've never used a desktop in their life for anything other than games... and oh wait that is all they do on the Tablets and IM and send SEXTING pictures.

AWESOME USER SET.
