    I actually ran Gnome 3 Shell + extensions. I switched to mate because of the insane memory requirements not being able to work on my Ancient Radeon 9600 with 64 MiB ram. I do have to say, with the right extensions, it works really well.

    Only that the available drivers have no 3D support.

    So the closed source drivers with accelerated OpenGL are gone?

    They only work with some ancient Ubuntu versions.

    Well, this non working mantra is at least 150-MUSD-net-income obvious.

    Has nothing to do with maintenance burden. Its easier to leave it alone altogether, which is what they should have done.

    What it is, is the gnome way.... copy apple. Ever wonder why gnome3+ menus look just like apple? Its because gnome are morons.

    Either way, I am a fan of Classic Session, and not found of gnome-shell at all.
    I hope Red Hat makes it great.
    You're getting your terms wrong (and I think a lot of people are confused about this, so getting it wrong only makes that worse).

    The thing that existed prior to 3.8 was never called 'classic'. It was called 'fallback mode'. 'Classic Mode' is the new thing in 3.8 that replaces fallback mode. It did not exist prior to 3.8. That is what RHEL 7 is using, *not* 'fallback mode'.

    Red Hat is committed to supporting development of F/OSS as a whole. Red Hat spends a whole bunch of money developing stuff that RHEL does not use by default or even at all (we have several paid staff working on KDE). I've been saying this forever, but apparently people insist on believing RH only develops stuff that RHEL uses

    Jim Whitehurst has several systems running Fedora, including pre-releases...

    Clearly, that's why we're paying people to write llvmpipe.
