      Speaking for myself, I don't hate it, I just intensely dislike it.

      Gnome Shell tries to turn a 24-inch monitor into a giant phone. I don't want my desktop to be a phone -- I want it to be... a desktop.

          Imagine if instead of spending so much time, energy and effort into getting gnome to become barely usable, the effort instead went into improving KDE.
          The linux desktop experience today would be 100 times better than it is currently. G*ome is the worst thing to have ever happened to the Linux Desktop and the linux community.

            Unfortunately, putting more developers on KDE won't make it a better DE. At least we have a usable one, no need for more.

              Gnome Classic is not an option for you? I'm using plain Gnome 3, but for newcomers I'm installing it for I always bring back bottom panel and sometimes classic menu.

                240Hz All the big distributors made an independent and thorough evaluation on the desktops. And they consistently picked GNOME.

                  Yeah! Like why couldn't they do some effort to buy the Qt company and own/open-source the toolkit forever?

                  It would have been a big investment, but one that would have brought a better future (since Qt is already trusted by major companies, while GTK gets no support).

                    now if there was a testament to the veracity of gnome's purported user friendliness...

                      The last proper user study on open-source desktop environments was Sun Microsystems and Gnome 2.

                      I think Gnome 3 has just won by proxy because... it has a similar name? this is probably why Microsoft renamed "MS Cool" to C#. To attract those that just assume newer versions are implicitly better.
