    As someone who launches gnome-terminal upon entering a gnome session, boot-to-picker may or may not be more convenient.

    Will reserve judgement until I actually tried it.

      Mez' Take a +1. The distributors find it easy to use extensions and themes to differentiate their products.

      It’s by far the most efficient way of doing things.

        Yeah, most of the time you launch some applications after startup, so from that perspective it makes sense. Still, it feels a bit strange to start into what's effectively the application menu instead of just booting to the desktop. I'm not really sure about this change.

            Gnome3 desktop UI/UX is by far the worst desktop, in terms of usability. Their Android/MacOS mobile interface is very difficult to use. A desktop without icons is not a real desktop. Sure, its possible to add 5-6 extensions to bring back lost functionality, but why bother when you can use something like Cinnamon, which is modern and usable.

              I use and used Gnome since the 1.x days, and is still my daily runner except for my Media PC which starts into Kodi and uses Openbox. The hate was always there. I really don't understand this, if you don't like it do not use it. If you like Gnome 2.x more use Mate. So much choice, but no lets hate 'because Gnome' for some reason.

              Promote your desktop of choice instead of hating the competition.

                EXACTLY. I do not use Gnome because its workflow is not good for me - but that does not mean that I am going to insult it. Constructive criticism, honest discussion, and humor is one thing. Name calling and insults are something different.
                GOD is REAL unless declared as an INTEGER.

                  The last time I tried Gnome it wasn't the UI/UX experience that was a deal breaker but the awful config utility that is completely useless, and no installing tweakui didn't help much. So did they improve the configurablity of Gnome in any recent release?

                    Hey, that is good news. The shell gets some love. And care and work are always appreciated !

                    I've checked the mockup:
                    - the boot overview: This is really smart move : it helps the new commers to better apprehend the shell and the experienced users will get an direct access to the application menu. It remembers me the move made with the dynamic desk.
                    - window picker: As you removed the desk list on the side, the idea to show on the side a small part of the other desk is interesting. This will provide the feeling to new comers that its desk is in between others.
                    - app folders: this was awaiting by everyone
                    - search: I love the idea of searching in anything. And I really miss beagle-project.org. It used to be called a resource eater. But their latest version was just working smoothly and the tool was wonderful. I really miss this tool. And I'd love to have a search in anything like this tool.

                    The impression I get is : that this new version of shell is pushed by the new realease of gtk4. Seems that it was the good time to show off the work done on gtk4.

                    Last but not least, I'd love to have the (french: sur-amplification) over-amplication of the sound enabled by default, with a warning when first enter with a message such as "Over-amplication is enabled, this can distord the sound."

                    I hope that the new UX, the new gtk4 and flathub/flatpak a great success.

                    Thanks for your christmass gift !

                    A happy gnome user.

                      I've been using Gnome 3 since its pre-release when it was still called 2.90, and I like it.

                      I don't miss icons on my desktop. I also don't miss the task bar and the tray.

                      Why do you guys hate it so much?
