    Well, as of the previous version of Gnome / Ubuntu, it was pretty difficult to choose a file. I think there was just a tiny preview for the selected file. KDE filepicker for instance offers thumbnails (incl. directories thumbnails). Also if I'm not mistaken (??) you cannot edit the location field (?). But the Gnome filepicker has a properly working "recent" location by default. (that kinda has to be added manually / tweaked under KDE, or at least it was the case until recently). Yet another example of several implementations of the same kind of components, with pros & cons on both sides that have no real justifications. (all features could be implemented on one)

    Please correct me if I'm wrong. Been using Ubuntu 19.04 for a few months.
    I can't try right now but I'm pretty sure you can edit location by pressing ctrl-L. Of course you need to know that in the first place, it's not easily discoverable and it's probably contrary even to GNOME's UI design guidelines.

    The unknowing is the problem.

    Oh! I see. Yeah, I agree. The GNOME file picker feels limited and every time I have to write a path (sometimes because I know the name and I don't feel like finding the file) I can't, unless I press "/" and then backspace.
    ​​​​​​They hide the advanced features and don't provide any options to enable them.
    But the worst of everything is that sometimes when saving a file using Audacity (which displays the GNOME file picker) and clicking a folder name from the left panel, it doesn't put me on the "File name" box when typing. No. It puts me on the Search box. Who would want to search something at save time?! All I want to do is to click a folder, write the file name, press Enter and that's it. But no, I have to click a folder, explicitly click on the "File name" box, write the name and press Enter. If I don't click on the "File name" box it searches. What in the heck!

    (also, please note that Windows has 3 file pickers, mostly for compatibility: one used in old Windows, another used in Windows XP (which I hate so much but I don't come across frequently), and the one you showed).

    Fedora 31 will have it, it should go into beta next week (09/17), you can get a snapshot of the current freeze here:
    http://download.fedoraproject.org/pu...on/x86_64/iso/

    The iso dated 20190912 does NOT have it, but the later ones should.

    Fedora Rawhide will also have it, but you would be better off waiting for the Fedora 31 beta. Another alternative that _DOES_ have it is Fedora Silverblue:
    https://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/c...ue/x86_64/iso/

    The iso dated 20190913 (or higher) DOES have it.

    Ubuntu 19.10 (https://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2019/05/...lease-features) will also have it on October 17.

    Any of the rolling release distributions, for example, OpenSUSE Tumbleweed (https://software.opensuse.org/distributions/tumbleweed) or Arch Linux should also have it right now.

    I use Gnome daily and have since the 1.x era. (Including Ximian Gnome) ... FreeBSD currently has 3.28 released Mar 14 2018, thanks to trouble non systemd OS's have back porting out systemd speific dependencies (Hey Gnome team, are you a Linux only desktop or are you a cross platform one like.. KDE, MATE, XFCE, LXQt and every other DE out there?)

    So.. ahem.. where as I haven't used a "new" version of Gnome in quite a while.. I can say the workflow is excellent. Gnome's philosophy has always been to get out of the users way and let them focus on whatever app or job they are trying to accomplish.. It's a "workflow minimalist" approach where you spend more time doing your task, and less time thinking about the desktop itself and this suits me quite well.

    For new ppl and ppl that don't like it, I always suggest just learning the hot keys and avoiding a lot of extensions. They tend to muck stuff up.
    I agree with the workflow comments about Gnome 3. I've found it to be the most streamlined of the Desktop Environments.
    Desktop icons are useless and just clutter, so I leave those turned off.
    I also agree that the file picker could use previews, maybe in a separate pane like Mac or Windows (so you can turn if off if you don't like it).
    The large bars on the tops of windows are a point of contention... I think they could go away...

    Yes, there is a desktop war, among the desktop developers, not among the users. It's almost time for Gnome 4 and the story will be the same as that we had between Gnome 2 and Gnome 3.
    There are currently ZERO plans for GNOME 4. There is a plan for a GTK4, but that is not meant to be a trigger for a new GNOME version.
