    Phoronix: GNOME's UX Team Working On More 2020 Improvements To The Shell

    While GNOME 3.36 shipped just last month, the GNOME user experience team is already working on improvements that could potentially make it into GNOME 3.38 this autumn for further polishing the UX of the desktop...

    Improvements?...

    I don't think making the lock screen so empty and lonely, still not having a non-full-screen launcher, no minimize buttons and no ability to customize certain crucial parts of the desktop (without extensions) are improvements...

      Is the UX team the one to blame for gnome3's horrible user interface, that looks like a mix between android and mac os?

      When are they going to accept the hard truth, that its truly a terrible user interface for power users, developers, professionals and pretty much everyone?

      Its sad to see everyone move to various alternatives, while the gnome team leaves in their own dream world of fantasy...

        I got no extensions. Works for me. The only thing I wish for is better gestures for touch. 3.36 was a great improvement on gestures but more would be nice.

          Actually, it is an awesome UX for power users and professionals, like myself. It is far better than any other UX i have ever used, provided you have actually taken the time to adopt to its capabilities and are not a stubborn 80 year old who doesn't want to change the windows paradigm because he is too old to learn new tricks.... And the only extension i use is the theme extension....

            Yes I really want more Filechooser improvements.

            Upper left of my 24" Monitor the Cancel button embedded in the Title.... Upper rights the Save/Load button and on the bottom rights the Dropdown to choose a filetype (e.g. export or import).

            Best Filechooser ever - I also need a much bigger mousepad to reach the positions.

            Good job UX Team!

              It's funny that every time I read news about Gnome 3 improvements make me happy that I don't use it.
              I've been putting my favorite programs shortcuts that I use the most, on desktop or on taskbar for years so I don't need wait for some developers to put them first in some menu, for which I need also to waste one more click and a bit of time until it's open.
              I wonder when they will realize that allowing the user to make shortcuts to programs, files and folders wherever they want (desktop, taskbar, file manager navigation menu) is way better than these little things they add once every 5-10 years that they call improvements.

                - Improving the application grid launcher and ensuring the most frequent / likely to be used applications appear first rather than in alphabetical order. The UX designers also want to make it "more engaging and performance."
                My OCD makes it so that I really dislike that feature. I get all twitchy when I access my menus and stuff is all in new places due to rearranging themselves. It slows me down because I have to relearn where stuff is just to click a few more programs which reorders stuff so I have to relearn where stuff is just to click on a few more programs which reorders stuff so I have to relearn where stuff is just to....Y'all see the problem here???

                Michael, found a misquote.
                However, we also want to make it a more engaging and personal part of the experience, so the apps space feels like it belongs to you.

                    I really like GNOME. Have taken a look at Xfce and Plasma on distrotest site. I use dash-to-dock because it hides the sidebar. I have just Firefox and VS Code pinned, and thunderbird not because i use it but because i find the icon beautiful. I also find GNOME itself beautiful, both light and dark. And really useful. I've user Windows 10 too. I don't need icons on desktop, i don't need windows-like toolbar. Everything i need i can just hit Super button and type it fast enough to start it without cluttering. Multiple workspaces are nice too, though i haven't gone more than 2. Activities hot corner is nice too. Extensions make it awesome too. Win + Tab and arrows are also easy and useful. Shortcuts like Win + H are nice too.

                    I just don't like that it is sometimes heavy, and after 2-3 days it used to start slow and chop, but i haven't experienced this as i recently enabled ZRam.
