    Yes, use both the keyboard AND the mouse to get the job done. That's how it's done! /sarcasm
    Moving mouse to upper left corner makes same effect as pressing super.

      Yep. I especially dislike how I need plugins from a website to give me functionality that XFCE and Plasma include by default -- that is not user friendly.

      Windows users don't want a desktop without a system tray, a task bar, or a start menu. I'd wager that's 85% of us based on all the Gnome3 comments I've read.

      I ran Gnome for the first time in a while on an Antergos live cd the other day and I was lost for the first few minutes. Once I got the hang of it, it wasn't that bad...but I still didn't like it and would have preferred a more traditional desktop. If Plasma's Present Windows became the method for me to switch windows....I'd drop Plasma in a heartbeat....because moving a mouse to the corner, moving to the program, and then clicking on it to use it is soooo much better and faster than clicking the freakin taskbar. Gnome multitasking is just awful.
      You can set Present Windows in any corner you like in Plasma.

        Or, you know, people have different preferences. You like GNOME? Fine. I don't. I respect your opinion, but in my opinion, GNOME is one of the worst DE's.

          Yeees. Suuuure. Great that you have finally figured out the culprit. Well, it's gonna be hard to satisfy those Windows 10 users with their nerdy desktop environment.

              I bet those Windows users can't wait till they spend hours customizing their desktop to look like Mac OS X.

                  I was a big fan of that addon. Thankfully, "Download Images from Tabs" provides the functionality I need in the latest Firefox:

                    What is it with ugly icons these days? I always have to use third party icons sets now because the default sets are so fugly. I really hate those pencil drawn-like shaded icon sets that are so popular these days too. Hell, I've still got icons I copied from KDE 2.x that I use for individual things on my panel. I keep a bunch of icons in ~/.config that have been copied over the years on different systems and DE's.

                    It's not just Gnome (or even just Linux UI's... think Windows 10)... fugliness is the new way.

                      Sure, people have different preferences. Most people like GNOME which is why the largest distributions have chosen it. Your opinion is in the 0,5% that doesn't like GNOME, congratulations.
