It's a "workflow minimalist" approach and it suits me quite well.
    Which 99% of desktop users want. They don't give a rip about the workings underneath. It just needs to work effectively, efficiently every time without bombing or running slow.

    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.

    that is a nice video, but the best of the video it's the cat hahaha, using the computer and the end in the cat with a pc mouse in the mouth. Glad to see mutter better performance I notice just for try it on the LXQt desktop and feel snappy the animations much better than before.

    The release videos are so much better and more likely to bring users to it.
    I have not seen videos about KDE Plasma, but having seen the new GNOME video I really wonder what should attract a real computer user?
    Some wild clicking, nothing like a desktop where one can really work, and what the speaker says does not fit to what is seen on the screen.
    The first impression was it is just for smartphones ... but if this kind of video can appeal I understand why many people here don't see any use for higher resolution like 8k or 16k.
    It is much to short to be an introductory - and what was possible with Compiz years ago was eye catching - I could not even say that it was pleasant in any way what was shown today (so many years later). Maybe I do miss something - or is this just for current GNOME users directly spotting the improvements?

    Been running the beta's and rc's for a while, and it's awesome, especially the Wayland improvements. Variable refresh rate is basically the only reason for me to occasionally go back into an x.org session now.

    Honestly, a big thank you to the GNOME team for their collective effort.

    3.34 has continued building on 3.30's speed and my desktop has never been better. For me, Ubuntu 19.10 with GNOME and some customizations has been an extremely pleasant experience.

    Here's a gif of the system flying on 3.34 (this is on an i5-4670K, a five year old processor). And I don't discriminate on older hardware - I run the same setup on my 2010 MacBook Pro. Not as fast, but still quick.

    Why are you talking so positively about GNOME recently? I have a fear you may turn into another Griffin later on...
