    Maybe they want to focus on Wayland, but that doesn't mean Gnome does 90% of the desktop Wayland work.

    Here we go again. Another off-topic, unsubstantiated claim.

    He comments as to why you comment on what someone else is doing if you think that only you are right

    As i suggested, just close the platform and stop trolling. That sounds fine to me, as if don't wanna support anything else who cares, we will all buy RHEL and that is it

    Who wants Wayland, proper QA, enterprise support should buy RHEL end of the road end of the story

    There are other options, but who cares about any other options if everything will be the same

    I don't have a problem with the switch. However "the very reason I've told you" is just another unsourced speculation of yours that you flaunt as fact.

    By the way, why did you fell like you had to come to this thread and tell us WHY Clear Linux has switched, when everybody knows there's no way you can know why they did? You can speculate, but that's about it.

    How do you know most people don't configure their DE's? Oh, KDE is customizable and this is problem for you? For sane people lack of ability to customize is the problem. Gnome isn't customizable, because it's based on gtk crap which makes things really complicated. Don't fool us it's an advantage. It's huge downside.
    How you managed to miss what i wrote is beyond me..., I gave an argument that KDE is NOT as customizable as you KDE fans claim it to be, i gave simple example of privacy settings, you didn't even bother to cover that section, why? If having ability to change the theme and layout out of the box (mind you GNOME can do that perfectly fine with tweak tool, in fact I don't use standard theme or layout - slightly different layout) is priority over privacy settings for you, hey, that's fine with me, but not addressing my argument is very dishonest, and I am not going into GTK+ and it's pros and cons, it's a toolkit, and it is constantly evolving, it's mostly not object oriented, and that is a good thing in my view, less confusing..., but that's beside the point.

    Now let me re-quote the part of my post (with fixed typos) you have chosen to ignore:
    "I remmember when using MATE i had to delete "recently-used.xbel" and create folder in order to prevent dumb panel of tracing documents, how is that fucntional? On KDE also, but much worse, it's tracing everything, and there's literally no option of preventing panel of colecting recent documents and applications, in GNOME 3, you can completely disable any tracking by simply pressing off switch in control-center, privacy. "

    From multiple studies, it is known fact that most people do not cunstomize theming etc., you would be suprized how meny people do not chage their desktop background even.

    I use Thunar. It used to have problems crashing when renaming files but that's been fixed now. I did use Nautilus for awhile but despite my best efforts I could never get it to fit into my theme completely. I'm very sensitive about the way my desktop works and looks and if it's not right I'll just spend all my time trying to make it so.

    I value beauty and the ability to customize, but above all I value efficiency. My goal is to get to all the programs and settings on my system in four mouse clicks or less, without cluttering up my desktop or taskbar with myriads of icons.

    I've even developed my own Wine Manager script that allows me to create bottles that are elegantly placed in whatever menus and submenus I want. I tried PlayOnLinux numerous times but wow, it's an ungodly mess, though it's great for novices. I use various different versions of Wine, both custom and standard, and mix and match them in my Wine menu however I wish. I also have complete control over the environment they run in so I can get most things to work. I even got Band in the Box to run under Wine with Jack integration, and I think that's been about the hardest thing I've ever done.

    ^^^ Even editing your own posts eludes you. I'm not surprised.

    The part: "With some tweaks and extensions".
    A DE should have that by default. It's like stitching genitals to castrated person. I'm with you but on absolutely on the other side of the fence. I don't understand how DE that ships with pre-configured shortcut suite can be called innovative?
    And it's not only about performance. Personally I'm Mate/Xfce user and I find those des superior to gnome3 anytime.
    For me extensions is great feature. I can easily add/remove feature from my desktop, just like in web browser. KISS isn't it?

    GTK complicate configuration of environment? It's only toolkit. Configuration options depends on application/DE developers. And what "break API" You meant? GTK 3 has stable API now. It won't be changed until GTK4.

    KDE5 stuff is not allowed in SLE or RHEL because of this. See the point?
    SLE or RHEL don't use KDE because they have SLAs that would need to cover them and they'd rather only support one DE. Huge difference, but also one beyond your comprehension.

    As for this "audited" stuff, keep it up. One day you start believing it.
