      So let me get this straight: We have monitors with resolutions that are skyrocketing and GPU power increasing to match, even in the mobile space, and to take advantage of that we go with icons that are simpler, flatter, overall less detailed and not looking out of place on Windows 95.

        All the big distributions push GNOME yet it's not the most used GNU/Linux desktop. This should tell you something; GNU/Linux users are people who got Windows with their computer & decided to change that. People using KDE/XFCE/other alternatives got GNOME with their GNU/Linux distribution and realized that some silly tablet OS isn't suitable for a desktop so they switched.

        If GNOME works for you then that's great. I personally can't stand it and I can't stand GNOME developers either. Going around to projects like Transmission and demanding that they remove support for features like a tray icon because "it's not the GNOME way" shows arrogance and stupidity beyond belief.

          "It's also about modernizing the icons so they more akin to the likes of other platforms where they are more simple and flat these days rather than being very detailed as was popular in the past."

            Why hasn't someone forked Gnome 3 and included all the extensions that make sense by default yet?

              Cinnamon, budgie etc are actually gnome 3 forks with nice workflow. Both of them are better than vanilla gnome.

                Do you have any numbers to backup your claims? I bet KDE and Cinnamon have much higher market share. I doubt most of the Linux users use Gnome which has serious performance problems and uses a lot of RAM. Its design choices are also quite 'original'. When comes to Gnome it was always politics and it seems it's still the case. However, we have a choice, because it's Open Source world.

                  Because gnome-shell is a very poorly designed single threaded javascript infested bloatware with horrendous latency large memory footprint and half assed broken non-standardized theme CSS with API breakages every release. There's no point of forking, instead it needs to be redesigned and reengineered by competent developer who is aware of basic DE/WM concepts that it should be modularized, run as high priority process, with very low latency even under background load, should have low overhead and be written in C/C++, research what Solus's Budgie WM did. Stinky GNOME foot and poo brown icons should have gone away ages ago, people calling it beautiful is beyond my comprehension,

                    Except that Gnome is neither single-threaded nor did it ever have a theme API to break.

                    But I do think that it needs a rewrite or major changes, parts of it should be re-written using GTK as a separate process (e.g. gnome-panel). It's completely bonkers using it for Wayland right now due to lack of session recovery.

                      Each time better and polished, as ever. Don't know how people can use KDE, XFCE or any other unpolished alternative. Budgie is also nice.
