Gnome "The team is proud to announce the release of MATE Desktop 1.6. This release is a giant step forward from the 1.4 release. In this release, we have replaced many deprecated packages and libraries with new technologies available in GLib. We have also added a lot of new features to MATE." Look at those screenshots. This is what GNOME is supposed to be: elegant, understated, to-the-point. I should try this.

Please... Why are there still these conservative people who like the windows 95 desktop still?

The OSX Dock/Ubuntu Launcher concept where running apps and favorite apps are accessed in the same way is much more intuitive. Especially on OSes with good virtual memory management, where leaving a program running for a long time doesnt matter. And computers with SSDs where launching an app is nearly as quick as switching windows to an already running app.

Because unlike "people" like yourself, we have something you all basically lack.

It's called a clue.

To me, it looks like the newer generation have traded religion for technology and church for corporation, and some of them are the new Jehova Witness trying to convince everybody that THEIR religion or church is the only one worth pursuing. At least they don't go door to door, yet...

Congratulations, you're just as ignorant and prejudicial as the OP.
