    Half of Gnome-Shell is written in Javascript

      I run KDE 1.1.2 on one of my desktops... its old and sketchy but its actually a desktop environment that *tries* to be a good desktop environment so right from the start is better than gnome has been in an eternity.

      I haven't tried KDE 2 but KDE itself probably peaked out in the 2.x - 3.5 range somewhere (3.5 is acutally a little bloated in that you need some sort of fast cpu or accelerator to render it rather than 1.1.2 which will run on an absolute potato. like 40Mhz an a framebuffer is enough).

        Personally I find the GNOME3 user interface rather horrible, a sad copy of MacOS, very unfriendly to power users and developers. But I do appreciate that the big players like Redhat and Canonical invest in a common desktop. Maybe in the future they'll invest in a more user friendly interface.

        Until they change their interface, I'll keep using Cinnamon, which is modern, friendly and usable for my work needs. It is also my goto choice for all enterprise linux desktops that I manage and never heard any complaints (unlike gnome3's interface).

        I'm glad Fedora comes in a Cinnamon spin!

          Like it or not, GNOME is deemed the Linux standard desktop environment. Besides, if it isn't, what is? It can't be KDE, primarily because its priorities tend to revolve around principles rather than needs (it also just tends to be treated as a 2nd class citizen). Many DEs are either directly dependent upon or forked from GNOME. Seems a bit weird for a standard to rely on someone else's code, wouldn't you say? Everything else is either woefully incomplete, buggy, unpopular, or under-supported to be deemed a standard.

          Keep in mind, I regularly use 4 different DEs, none of which are GNOME. So I'm not biased here when I say GNOME is the best choice to be the Linux standard, even if it isn't the best DE.
          Well said.

          As a KDE/Plasma user I'm reading a lot of these comments and thinking to myself "Do these people not realize just how much stuff is following Gnome's lead in design styles, uses/depends on their tools, and more?"; because when one uses "not Gnome", doesn't matter what, simply "not Gnome" is sufficient here, they realize that Gnome is the standard because that's what all the well funded & major decision making players use and, therefore, that's what most everything else follows and, depending on what distribution one uses, using "not Gnome" is more trouble than its worth if there isn't a "not Gnome" edition available.

            Gnome is actually a copy of the Android mobile interface.

                GNOME's "design style" is a mix of Windows 8 and MacOS, applications using GTK aren't using the actual Standard Linux Desktop GNOME but a desktop toolkit developed by the same people.

                    I would like there to be a beautiful wallpaper without blue hues so that it can be used on evenings without delaying melatonin release in the brain.

                      The mobile leauncher, huge headers and icons is another. But at least Android lets you place icons on your homescreen or change basic settings without third party tools , a luxury that you cannot find with Gnome.
