    Android: tons of Google apps that have changed names or workflows because Google (also see the Google Graveyard website);
    iOS/macOS: Apple keeps merging apps to integrate everything into one app, and also other migrations and name changes like iTunes --> Apple Music for example.
    Therefore in Windows I use Firefox, IrfanView, Thunderbird, and Media Player Classic (packaged by K-Lite). Oh "classic" Paint still exists in Windows 10 (not sure for Windows 11), even though its interface has been ribbon-ized long ago.

    If you had read the rest of my post, you would know that I wasn't talking about app support in general but about MS moving people from one of their first-party apps to the other. Whether or not you can use the old apps still is beside the point and not something most people would do anyway. Most people accept the new apps or learn to deal with it.

Other solution? Switch to alternative software or stay with older distribution, but... anyway stop complain.
    What a retarded shill you are.

    Exactly. Can't say I agree with many of his opinions either, but in this thread all he did is ask if someone is interested in porting some old apps from gtk2. Then, the next commenter who got the most likes started harrasing him. And then all the others.
    I think it's simply unnecessary, considering he didn't voice some controversial opinion or something. And it just makes everyone here look immature.

    That is pretty much what I resorted to when Gnome died and was replaced in the repos by a completely different project with the same name.

    It is actually quite liberating to jump off that treadmill but certainly isn't going to attract new users any time soon.

    Well, it is pretty annoying for people who don't care much about looks or advanced gui features.
    I used to prefer gtk 1.x based tools long after gtk2 was out, same with gtk3.
    I suppose I'll end up using only cli + ncurses based tools with a virtualized web browser, or something.
