    Phoronix: It's Easy To Guess What Angers GNOME Users

    The 2011 GNOME User Survey, an end-user survey that was assembled by independent GNOME users and hosted on Phoronix, began less than 24 hours ago and we're already approaching 2,000 submissions. There's still one month to go, and from these submission so far when simply dumping the comments it amounts to about 148 pages. However, it's not hard to guess what most of these comments are about when it comes to the GNOME desktop...

    I'm sure there was some positive feed back in there

    Probably on the lines of more collaboration like at the Desktop Summit (that's what I put so I know it's in there)

    PS I'm a KDE User but still filled it in

      I guess I can say that now.

      +1 Gnome developers are assholes.

      (Sorry for trolling. I am not the troll type. I really not used to call anybody ***hole. I know its rude, very rude. But they deserve it).

      And really no explanation can hold up when they remove ability to choose between hibernate and suspend option. Its 0 maintenance. Only being an ***hole can explain that. G-shell plugin that add it back doesn't count.

      If they make a dumb-down g-shell plugin that would remove even all options I am fine with that but not the other way around.

      And even if they finally accept revival of some of removed options that won't make them any better.
      Really switch to KDE. No matter how buggy/slow it is. It is where freedom lies.

          +1. I'm a happy Gnome user, too, and I didn't participate because the agenda of the survey was so obvious. And who do you reach on Phoronix with a survey? Not normal users, only power users, nerds and haters.

            They added the ability to do that with gnome 3.2 which is awesome.

              Disclaimer: Happy gnome user here, was a happy KDE user until 1 month ago, then wanted a change

              What's to bet that the same people moaning about Gnome 3 and pointing out how great KDE is are the same people who hated on KDE4 when it game out and pointed out how great gnome was.

              Honestly.

              Haters gotta hate.

                If you want to improve anything you might consider providing constructive feedback that provides details and suggestions instead of bitching about everything.

                This article and its forum discussion is another excellent example of the degeneration of Phoronix

                    whats the problem? I mean what really sucks, is that ubuntu does not support gnome-shell properly, they dont include some packages that are in the gnome 3.2 release, and they dont make a kind of good theme for it etc, because they wanna force the users to use the much more hated unity desktop.

                    Because of that, the user Experience for gnome-shell is worse than it could be. Gnome2.x did also only shine on distries that did support it well and did preinstall a good default theme, therefor ubuntu was famous.

                    Besides that, gnome-shell needs some love but the ideas and concepts of it are really good and neccessary. gnome 2.x is done if you like it use it there is no need to make it better, it does most stuff like it should.

                    So users that are crying now should just use older linuxes or install somehow the gnome2.x packages in their distries. Why do all people need to update their linux all 6 months you need that if you wanna see such new ui or if you did buy a new hardware and the drivers for the old linux are bad, but even than there are backports of the new kernels for the older distries. So just use a old distri and wait a few minor-releases before you switch to gnome-shell.

                      I hated KDE4 when it went out, I still don't like it that much. I never liked Gnome much.
                      I switched to gnome when kde 4.0 was published.
                      And of course I didn't witness the feature removal during my use of it much.
                      (They did remove few things there an there but not much reason to start hating them.)

                        I switched to a Mac.

                        Seriously good product these days. You more or less get a BSD UNIX with a good set of apps. Plus the ability to run hundreds of UNIX and X apps. Best of both worlds. Further it puts some real space between me and GPL3.

                        Considering the amount of Open source software that Apple does support I actually end up feeling pretty good about the choice. LLVM/CLang are coming along really well offering a real alternative to GCC. All my usual tools are right there or a download away. If not Apple has been pricing commercial software much more reasonably these days.

                        In a nut shell I don't have to put up with GNome anymore.

                          I would have though most of the crit you hear applied to gnome 3 could be give to lion as well. Lack of customisation. Similar design ideas etc But I got too admit the macbook air Is a fine looking machine. I have thought about getting a mac. But no its not for me.

                            If you are really sorry, then just don't troll. Otherwise you are a mere boring hypocrite.

                            I don't entirely support all the changes, but the overall impression of GNOME 3.2 for me is great. Just pretty please make a proper GTK2 version of Adwaita (no, both analogs are not good enough).
