      They should rename it to Terrible Desktop or Ugly Desktop.

        Perhaps Gnome 3 should have so we can all just stick with the official Gnome 2 and stop fscking around.

          I agree that they should improve the default look, but you have to admit that they're doing a great job on keeping it lightweight and performant. The whole desktop (including X and whatnot) uses less than 250 MB on Linux. That's pretty lightweight for a full-blown dekstop. Yes, Enlightenment is more lightweight and Xfce is maybe up to par, but there are more resource-hungry desktops than this. And now quite a few of their apps have multi-threading support for even more performance, so that's also a good thing.

            If you can do better, feel free to send them PR's with graphics improvements. If you can't, needling them about it is rather low. Coders usually are not graphics designers

                I mean you looked at the screenshots right? It's really not that bad anymore. It doesn't look great but it's on par with where the other lightweight desktops are. I won't be leaving KDE for it anytime soon, but it's been a while since it deserved those titles.

                  Okay, I'll bite. What in particular interests you about it? I mean it's nice that FreeBSD has a decent native desktop now, but beyond that use case it's just Yet Another Lightweight Desktop Environment.

                    I also can't find any reason to call it ugly at all. It's getting nicer. Of course it won't win any eye candy contest yet, but I think currently it's actually ok.
