    21 years old and still not an adult. Hopefully by 30 they would have grown up. And KDE don't snigger, you are no different -.

        That's just plain wrong kid. You missed Gnome 1.

          I was in college, using Solaris 7 and CDE (and Windows 98 and NT/2000) during that era.

            The things I'm most looking forward to in Gnome 3.30 are:
            • Replacing the drop down app menu thing with a hamburger menu. It may seem like a small thing, but that old app menu just seemed so wrong and the hamburger replacement seems so right; especially as Gnome seems to gradually shift towards being convergent or at least a multi-device-type desktop (phone/tablet/desktop).
            • Better performance.
            • Improvements to their Wayland server implementation.

              Nice milestone. It's seen a lot of change. I remember when Enlightenment was the default WM for it. Those were the days I've always been more of an E user, but I like to mix things up a bit, and Gnome is my 2nd favourite, by a long shot.

                And it's really no holy grail in usability. In example: ever tried adding stuff to the panel? It's surely possible, but the process is awkward and not intuitive in any way. I look forward to Gnome 3.30, too. I think they're doing fine.

                  Could you be more specific ? I usually drag and drop things to the panel and it usually works. I also don't understand what's not inituitive in that process...

                    Xfce is terribly maintained and apparently their users don't like to report bugs.
                    This is a regression from 2009 https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14102 and they only just fixed it.
