    Only occurance of logind i could find was from systemd so does this mean Gnome 3.8 has an implied dependency on systemd? Or can you load logind without systemd?

        GNOME doesn't directly depend on logind but the D-Bus interface which is provided by logind but alternative implementations can be used instead. GNOME already uses several such interfaces.

          GNOME Fallback mode

          Drop or Fix Fallback Mode
          https://live.gnome.org/ThreePointSev...ixFallbackMode

          I hope they do not drop GNOME Fallback mode!
          I am no fan of Unity or GNOME Shell, and really like the classic GNOME experience.

            Yes, I do, because it's so lightweight but still renders the web correctly thanks to the WebKit engine. And it integrates so nicely with the rest of the system.

                My eyes are BURNING!!!! PULL THEM OUT!!! PULL THEM OUT!!!!

                And bullet point / link:
                "the presence of fallback mode is having a negative impact on the quality of the primary GNOME 3 user experience"

                    My experience with gnome-fallback in dual-head/non-xinerama (zaphod) configurations is that it is nearly as useless as Unity or Gnome3. I switched to XFCE.

                      Yes, users that runs on XO laptop series with recent release of Sugar 0.96 based on Fedora 17.

                        It seems a long way before we can finally see the client-side decorations in GTK+...

                          nice owncloud support finaly... saw it in the todo list for 3.8 but that it is done in 3.7.1 is great so they have time enough to make it really stable and good for 3.8 not such a preview version like gnome-boxes in the first version.

                            Seemingly gnome-improvements in the gnome-developer's sense is rather a reduction of flexibility and configurability. They need to stop that and copying Canonical's strive to reduce the graphics-fallback to the horrible llvmpipe.
                            Fortunately, we do have a choice contrary to the poor Windows 8 users. No wonder less and less people actually use Gnome on their desktops.
