    Thats a classic. Envy causing moronix hate. Everybody know you and fellow KDE neckbeards are flaming GNOME because of envy. Loooooooosers.

      It seems you're too stupid to get the point. What envy? It's the worst piece of shit ever and it's harming Linux. It's also unpopular compared to KDE, Unity and Gnome 2. Oh, and when Ubuntu kills Gnome it will be too late to become smart.

He went on to say Gnome 2 was ok, but that is was "old" and the community wanted to do something new, so keep improving or making incremental changes to 2 was out of the question. That's it. I've heard better reasoning for Gnome 3 reading /. flame wars. Really. He asks the audience if they thought Gnome 3.0 was ready for users. When pretty much everyone disagrees, he says "well, it's a matter of point of view, and I thought it was ready, so there. Myth debunked. Next.". Really, I don't dislike Gnome 3 with passion or anything, but this whole video was so uninformative it's actually amazing. The part about removing features (edit: about 8 minutes in the video) is jaw-dropping. He says it's a myth that they keep removing features because they decide a certain way is best and so they take configurability away from the UI. That's what removing features is, how can he say it's a myth? He's affirming what he's supposedly denying!
        I agree with you that some of the "myths" are actually just fact and it would have been better to just offer their rationale for a decision rather than deny reality.

        But the presentation seemed to be a little bit "missing the point" in the sense that the criticism is not necessarily with GNOME 3 per se, but rather the shell they've given us which, frankly, doesn't work for some of us. I respect that they have their vision and for some users it's a great shell, but for a lot of us it just doesn't work, it's not simply a superficial appearance thing, and they've lost us.

        To pretend that it's all just a myth in our heads is perplexing.

        I'm not saying that Win 7 or OS X or Unity or GNOME 2 (gnome-panel) all give us perfect shells but for many of us we can at least balance the usability against the sacrifices and make it work. For some of us GNOME Shell can't do that. At all.

          ... my laptop fell when I was making the last post and is now all fucked up but I will continue my argument:



          KDE is not for me, it never was, it's too 'all over the place' menus inside menus inside menus, big fat colorful icons looking like they were drawn by crayons etc...


          ... but hey AT LEAST YOU CAN USE IT, as it FUNCTIONS.


          LXDE is primitive/basic as shit but again IT FUNCTIONS

          xfce ditto


          All the win interfaces from 95 to 7, were for me just a step above KDE but again THEY FUNCTION.


          The ones I'm more at home with and feel JOY in using:

          OS X 10.4, pantheon, UNITY, iOS, ICS.


          gnome 3 is just NOT FUNCTIONAL, GET IT? NOT ON A FUCKING TABLET NOT ON A FUCKING LAPTOP NOT A FUCKING DESKTOP

          IT IS A BROKEN PIECE OF SHIT DESIGNED BY PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO DESIGN A UI.



          GRAB WINDOWS 7 AND OS X AND UNITY AND WHATEVER THE FUCK YOU WANT

          AND THEN GRAB GNOME 3

          do this:


          USING YOUR MOUSE AND NOT SHORTCUTS LIKE A FAT NECKBEARDED PIECE OF SHIT



          copy and paste text from a text document putting it side by side with a firefox window


          open several nautilus windows in different folders and copy files amonst them


          switch from a application to another




          I WILL FUCKING DO PHYSICAL HARM TO SUM1 THAT SAYS THAT GNOME 3 IS GREAT IN FRONT OF ME IN REAL LIFE

            While I don't share Pallidus' love for MacOS/Capslock, I agree with the point he made.

              oh I hate HATE all things apple and appletards....


              but I'd be lying... actually everyone has to recognize iOS and that aqua thing in os x 10.4...


              They've got really good designers is what I'm saying.


              it's like the antithesis of linux


              apple = crap systems, superb design


              linux = great systems, crap design (except for chrome os, unity -coul be lots improved, ICS )



              let's talk straight now gnome 3 really alienated people and they are going down a path that is self destructive and they will make 1000 excuses and say the blame it's on the users and their unwilligness to accept new things


              I love new things


              sometimes I love something because it's new, hell I'm running k3.8 and all alpha software just because I like NEW


              I love android I love all things touch

              I didn't really like the windows UI from 95 to 7 and I consider win8 to be the same shit since all you have to do is install a fucking start menu app and TA DA same exact shit.


              I can like something: ios, unity, pantheon

              or not like something: kde, cinnamon, windows


              but you will never see me talk shit about cinnamon, kde simply because even if I don't like the 'windows' look, it is functional and, if need be, I can use it.


              with gnome 3 I wanted to like it

              I've tried it and it's just frustration and stupidity and uglyness


              In 15 days I could fix it but in every new version they just keep going deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole that is pure fail

              gnome used to be present in all the top linux distros

              now they managed to piss everyone off and the last remaining gnome stronghold is even considering switching to cinnamon or whatever.


              yet they put their hand on their ears and do the "LA LA LA LA LA" like mongoloid kids

                "Thanks" to Gnome 3 developers there's no unified notification system between KDE and Gnome. There are rumors (or perhaps, it's confirmed and I have missed something) Ubuntu will completely cut off from the Gnome and common graphic stack like Wayland and will use some part from Android. Upcoming Canonical's SDK won't be compatible with Gnome, so developers will have additional work to do if they wish to support both environments... I wonder how Nvidia and AMD are willing to support Wayland and Ubuntu's stack same time? The point is there are great non Ubuntu technologies like Wayland and systemd, but they'll loose, because Ubuntu is the most popular distribution. It could be different if Gnome 3 wouldn't be such a broken mess made and approved by selfish idiots who doesn't care about Linux' popularity, but about themselves. In Gnome 2 times Ubuntu was only slightly more popular, because users could install Fedora and they had similar experience. I bet Fedora with Gnome 2 like DE would slow down Canonical from turning away from upstream technologies. Btw. there's very popular KDE that will use Wayland, but it can't do much alone without corporate support like Fedora and Gnome have.
                So basically... Canonical takes Ubuntu in a new direction, and it's GNOME's fault? Yikes... Why is it not KDE's or XFCE's fault? I mean if KDE was totally awesome Ubuntu would surely use that, right? Because it could not be that the Ubuntu-people want to their own thing?
                Take a step back, take a few breaths, and consider if what you just wrote makes sense and is fair.
                If you want to dislike GNOME. Fine. But calling the developers "selfish idiots" when the sole argument against it seems to be "I don't like it, why don't they work on what I want?" it seems a bit hypocritical. This goes a general comment, and is not only directed towards you, by the way.

                Also as a general note to the GNOME-haters: There is quite a lot of us with "real jobs" who happens to like GNOME3 and use it daily.

                  if there are so many people out there that love gnom3 then explain to me why even fedora (the only relevant distro that uses gnome3 as default at this point) is even considering switching to cinnamon?



                  I wasn't around but a quick look in wikipedia takes us back to the time when fedora,ubuntu, debian, mint ALL shared the same fucking DE

                  well something clearly went askew when even fedora is abandoning ship.



                  as soon as fedora does that, and it will

                  gnome3 will be as relevant as a week old beach turd from a stray dog.


                  they will drive the gnome project straight into the ground while singing "LALA LA it's not us it's people who dont like new things LA LA LA" and in the trunk there will be a dozen retards LIKE YOURSELF singing " there's nothing better than gnome, except national socialism and german trannies"

                    They aren't. Just one guy made a proposal that he thinks that Fedora should switch to Cinnamon. So the rest of your post is irrelevant.

                      Someone proposed the feature. It was not accepted. It says nothing about Fedora as a whole.

                      Well, GNOME3 is more than two years old now, and I see nothing that suggests it is going away soon. I guess we will see in a few years.
                      Why do you feel that calling names is necessary? It's not really making your arguments seem stronger. Quite the contrary. You are more or less living up to the stereotype of "Gnome haters".
                      Also, I have nothing against trannies, regardless of their country of origin. There are some really bad-ass trannies out there!

                        yes you are right vim, everyone loved the anaconda UI

                        everyone loved fedora 18

                        and everyone loves gnome3


                        I'm done with this

                        arguing with stupid dickless retards will get you nowhere, gnome3 is great and it's user base is increasing by the day

                        best DE and UI ever I'll be sure to install it in every laptop, tablet and smartphone I have ... right after I stick my unprotected dick in your mother's aids infested cunt.



                        edit ( I couldn't resist it): "Also, I have nothing against trannies"

                        there you go: gnome users = tranny lovers

                          It is a shame you never spent the 5 minutes understanding the fedora feature proposal system. Well the cinnamon as default DE was voted down. BTW feature proposals doesnt prove anything. A similar proposal of including FreeBSD was announced. Sure it was a joke, just like it is ajoke to consider cinnon worthy of being default.

                          Oh yeah and I like your way to judge gnomes relevancy. Im looking forward to you ACCEPTING gnome as your LORD the minute it is proven to be default i RHEL. Unless of course you will change your logic to keep you idiotic conclusions.

                            I think Phoronix forums might be the only forum I've seen which actually needs the "Ignore user" feature... this guy makes funkSTAR seem almost polite.

                              I never said something like that. In fact, I don't like Gnome 3 either. But that does not mean that I have to spread things that are simply not true.
                              You know, the ability of people to argue their case without name-calling and with supporting their point of view with facts is in general that what divides rational people from mindless zealots, in both camps, Gnome haters and Gnome lovers.

                              So you are a Necrolover? My mother is dead for years and this makes you look really pathetic.

                              there you go: gnome users = tranny lovers
                              Man, you just showed anyone what kind of a person you are.
                              I still wonder how anyone can be so dumb to be incapable to see that they make themselves look like total idiots with what they write.
