    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).

    File picker? What do you mean? Like Dolphin?

    If so then there's Nautilus?

    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.

    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.)

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?)
    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

    I have removed desktop Icons quite a while ago. I was used to them, since they've been there forever, but after I put some attention in my workflow, wanting to know if icons should be there, I noticed they're just covered all the time. I found myself moving windows around to be able to reach them, whenever I wanted to get access. Hitting the superkey and typing the first 2-3 letters feels just more efficient to me and scales well to my needs, removing having to move windows back after clicking on a item. Thats what I like about gnome: It feels just that bit smarter and more modern to me than other desktops, even if they remove old paradigms once in a while. Whenever I use XFCE or KDE, I always have the feeling I have to click one more time than needed, for quite a lot of tasks.

    More powerful in which way?
