    They don't have to follow any single user that has a complaint, but they should "listen" to their users as a whole, and they'd have a very powerful tool to do that: anonymous opt-in telemetry of installed extesions
    What better way to know which features should be embedded than to measure those really used by your users?

    Thanks, that sounds like it offers some improvement.
    You talked all that nonsense, did all those replies with breakdowns of each sentence, but didn't know that spacebar previews an image? That works on any OS, noob. Do better next time.

    I provide way more information/context/everything on Phoronix better than you do, ElectricPrism. You provide nothing. Never forget that.

    edit: Absolutely f'n nothing. Michael please DO NOT censor posts anymore. That's not a way to treat a lifetime phoronix subscriber who only tries to help people on here. This worthless f*ck

    ElectricPrism did nothing except whine and expect praise, and should not be rewarded for that bullshit. He should be given no credit. F'n prick really set me off this morning. I'm in California too. Come see me.

    That post is not a critique of Gnome, at all. It was just meant to show a little data about how much Red Hat contributes to the project.
    The point is that a company whose source of revenue are cloud services and support for a server operating system is hardly going to focus its efforts on the desktop side of things.
    This doesn't mean that Gnome can be broken, because it can't.
    The problem is that it just need to be enough for Red Hat's server use case.

    That's not the case for Ubuntu and PopOS that must ship with a few extensions to make it barely acceptable for a more typical desktop user.
    And if their target user worked with images that wouldn't be enough because Nautilus and the file chooser are the worst at dealing with folders with lots of pictures

    Bunch of damn whiners and people who expect everything to be handed to them.

    Go do something about it instead of complaining on Phoronix, tough guy. "Check my impulsiveness" The nerve on this dude.

    The problem with them is that they disappear after X seconds
    No they don't.
    That's not how notifications work in Gnome 40. It's similar to how notifications work in for example Android.
    For example, new mail notification from Evolution will not automatically disappear in Gnome 40.

    ElectricPrism deleted?

    What's up with that censorship bud.

    The guy cried on here, and then a bunch of other whiners liked his post. Go comment on KDE posts, and stay off GNOME threads if you don't like them.

    Sad bunch. Ain't fooling nobody with those long posts ElectricPrism.

    As for Epiphany, can it run sandboxed with Flatpak? Because I don't need a web browser to have access to all of my file system, just ~/Downloads.

    As for Evince, I want it sandboxed with Flatpak so I can open unknown PDF files from untrusted sources. PDF can execute JavaScript code, it is not just a document with text, images and drawings.
    I would also like a sepia mode to make it more comfortable to read.
    When the dark mode is activated it only makes the document dark but not the whole user interface and theme dark.

    As for gedit, it still does not support syntax highlighting for ASP.NET views (.cshtml files).

    As for GNOME Calculator, it lacks support for plots which is supported by calculators in other systems such as Windows and macOS.

    maybe add server-side decorations support too
    From what I understand the developers themselves does not consider themselves chasing a touch-screen approach or copying Mac or Windows 8, they idea is a "modern desktop", so they want a DE for PC, but they have a different idea how that one is.

    That's great but they still don't have Dash to Dock & Dash to Panel or Arc Menu working quite right with Gnome 40.
    I use Dash to Panel and ArcMenu on GNOME 40 and it works fine. I don't think Dash to Dock works yet though.

    Well you don't need to pay attention to any flame war or care about what other people think. Just use whatever you like and be happy about it. If your favorite extension isn't built-in then why does that matter when you can just enable that extension and have it exactly how you want it?

    So, which user is GNOME for??????

    This is a BIG problem, since I am not a "basic" windows user, but a Linux user from 1996.

    Have you ever seen the new messages icon of whatsapp?
