    You are also thinking that Linus is still writing the Kernel by himself.. alone?

    Some people are pulling the right strings but large scale projects like Linux kernel , gnome, KDE are never done by one person alone. Maybe at the beginning but after a while they aren't anymore

      It barely even counts as sarcasm at this point. So many idiotic bugs have been found in gnome-shell/mutter in the last couple of years and I bet there's still plenty more to come.

      It probably happened the same way as how gnome-shell originally came into existence. A bunch of bad developers with overpowered workstations just threw some shitty code at the wall and then said "well it seems fast enough on my machine".

        Strangely enough, I switched to Gnome 3 back when I ran a Pentium IV and a GT210, and thought it ran quite well, compared to KDE or Xfce

          I really don't know if this is the case here but some Devs really don't care about code optimization and they don't even see it because they run strong computers....MH I guess that's more or less the same what JustinTurdeau said...bit more polite

            And here goes ridiculous part. Since 2011 (fist GNOME 3 release) KDE folks managed to deprecate KDE4, rewrite DE on "new" QT5 and call it Plasma, fix it, fill with a lot of features and port most of the programs to a new frameworks version. And it works FASTER, eats LESS RAM, and has MORE FEATURES and CUSTOMIZATIONS I think I am going to die of laughter right now.

              Are you dumb or just trolling? I never said DdV is the sole contributor to gnome, but without him its performance and usability would be pre alpha stage. What are other gnome devs going besides writing garbage for others to fix?

                The majority of Gnome devs do not use Linux or the Gnome desktop enviroment. Majority of them use macbooks. They dont care since they dont need to live with the consequences of bugs in software that they dont use

                  So, you are not only unable to read code, you are also unable to recollect what you wrote 5 minutes ago. You wrote "Without Daniel there would be no Gnome Shell or Mutter", which in fact implies that he is the only contributor that does anything that matters.

                    Correct, there would be just unusable garbage. And who are you trying to impress with your ability to "read code"? Did you learn it yesterday and want to show off?

                      They're fixing their MacOS laptops.
