    Someone should take the job and toss out Gnome and put them on a decently modern DE like sway. Bring them up out of the 1990's.

      Sway isn't a DE.
      Sway doesn't have an app toolkit.
      Sway doesn't have the billion other things required to make a coherent desktop platform.

        I'm voting for KDE. However, if they'll fix few things in Gnome it will be really good. It seems Red Hat does really care about Linux desktop.

            Well it's a good thing you don't get any say in such a thing because if everyone's feelings about each DE was acted upon, none of us would have anything to choose from, or at least nothing worthwhile. Whatever DE it is you use, there are people (even in these forums) who would find it just as dissatisfying as you find GNOME.

            Just because it doesn't suit your tastes, doesn't mean it's bad. I'll likely never install GNOME on any of my PCs but I acknowledge what it is good at, which is quite a lot.

              Yep, I wish Red Hat would focus on KDE instead of Gnome.

                A billion things you didn't really need to do anyway.

                  Think I'll apply for the job just to really upset you, schmidtbag. If they don't give it to me, I'll scream age discrimination and force my way in with an army of civil rights lawyers. You do support diversity hiring, don't you?

                  And then? No more Gnome. Get ready for sway.

                    What like a toolkit to write applications in?
                    and those applications.
                    and all the related libraries

                    What's the point of a compositor if you've got nothing to run on it.
