    Gnome should have an option to check If the New addition play well with your installed extentions.

    The user should have the opportunity to hold back If it doesn't.

    A's things stand now. You can with a whole cycle to get a fix. Then a other half of a cycle to have you extentions fixed. That's waiting Nine months just to get what you already have up and running.

    You'd even Thing Gnome holds a personal interest in things being defunct so they can wait for distros like Fedora to come out with the error and get the fix

      If it's a major GNOME release, it's more than likely that your extension is going to break.

      GNOME used to stop loading extensions made for old versions of GNOME, I'm not sure why they stopped doing that.

        IMO this is a problem because GNOME relies way too much on extensions, so that when extensions break the whole desktop becomes dramatically less usable. Things like the dock, applications/places menus, desktop icons etc. should all be part of the core functionality and be rock solid. Then if extensions were only needed for stuff like checking for twitter posts, f/x rates or the weather, the breakages wouldn't matter nearly as much.

          Gnome is the biggest shit stain for open source. How can something be made by so many people sharing the same wrong, shitty ideas? At least KDE is a real, functional desktop that performs well. It has nearly all gnome's features...as options. It's the best.

            Gnome has many great ideas and some wrong ones but the same is true for every other desktop in existence, Windows and MacOS included. Gnome has some long standing implementation issues, especially the Gnome Shell's single threaded model and the recurrent debate about extensions. KDE has its own share of problems. In the race of Linux desktops KDE is the distant second (or is it even the second?) and there are objective reasons for that, it's not the result of some dark Gnome/Canonical/Red Hat conspiracy.

              "An option for disabling the shell's hot-corner behavior."
              This should have been already done in 2011, not now.

                Well, there's a desktop that claims to be the shittiest:
                https://github.com/mateusfccp/shit-desktop

                Oh! Who would guess? It's a Plasma's "mirror".

                  Leet we forget the Suckless project. Probably so called because it sucks, and does less.

                    IMHO: KDE is dog ass slow and bloated.
