    Try installing Solaris 11.3 and see for yourself what peak GNOME2 UX performance looks like.

KDE, MATE, XFCE, LXQt and every other DE out there?)
      The point here is rather: when will the BSD people offer something with similar power like systemd? The reason why the gnome people make more and more use of it is not that it's shine and exclusive, but that it brings much needed functionality. For example session management: before 3.34, the shell had its own dependency management to start everything needed in the right order. Now they let systemd do that, which does the job much better because it is actually designed for it (complex dependency management). That's called KISS. Instead of heaving to implement everything over and over again, have one component do it right.

      I can only recommend this video from a FreeBSD developer about systemd: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o_AIw9bGogo
      And here is the GUADEC talk about user session management: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdwi3NWAW7I

          HOWEVER, after having used Unity, I think Gnome is wasteful with vertical screen space. Therefore the Unite extension is essential for me to get an efficient full screen experience.
          If vertical space is your problem, try the Hide Top Bar extension. It's one of the 2 non-included extensions I always need in Gnome for workflow, the other being Workspace Matrix. I do use 4/5 extra extensions but those are app related (like GsConnect, Freon, Gamemode, etc.)

            I've used Nautilus since it was commercial software. I don't think it is the best file manager, tho it isn't bad. My prefrence is (in no order) Nautilus, Thunar, PCmanFM-Qt, and Deepin File Manager. (Honorable mention are some like Sunflower) - The worst of any OS are in order Finder (Mac), Dolphin (Plasma) and Explorer (Windows). Far too many needless options. I wouldn't be surprised to see "compress files into self extracting mp4 sildeshow and send to one of your contacts over ham radio" In Dolphin.

              File picker? What do you mean? Like Dolphin?

              If so then there's Nautilus?

                Just made an experiment using a modern distro. Obviously the performance is excellent. It seems (i'm not sure) ye old nautilus drew the desktop icons onto the screen avoiding any canvas (this is the reason why any gtk3 solutions is really slow, and the reason why Gnome 3 doesn't have any desktop icons).

                    Then I wonder why their launcher is against this philosophy?

                      There is no proper way to select files in gnome.

                      Filepicker in Gnome.


                      Filepicker in windows

                      Filepicker in KDE
