Editorial Like many of you, I've been watching the big changes in user interfaces over the past few years, trying to make sense of them all. Is there a common explanation for the controversies surrounding the Windows 8 UI and Unity? Where do GNOME 3, KDE, Cinnamon, and MATE fit in? This article offers one view.

Gnome 3

As I understand it, the Gnome 3 devs didn't add classic mode because they listened to the users...they added it because RedHat made them.

A lot of the Gnome developers are RedHat employees and when they started getting feedback for RHEL7 it was very obvious that most RHEL users didn't want Gnome 3.
