    Gnome is very customizable. If you don't like the defaults of a specific distro, you are free to change them or pick another distro with better defaults.

    Besides, this kind of logic doesn't make sense: Kubuntu sucks hence KDE sucks. I'm sure there's a name for this kind of fallacy but I have better things to do than search wikipedia right now.

    Pretty much.

    Also don't think that because you don't see huge sweeping changes in the UI that stuff is not going on. Gnome-shell is pretty radical UI change, to be sure, but stuff like proper Webkit integration is as important (for example). It increases the performance, capabilities, and stability of all the applications that have to display html formatted stuff in some manner.

Personally I'd feel cheated if I'd be a Gnome user or if I'd have some distro with Gnome being default DE. What's the reason for you as the Red Hat for supporting it? It has your focus, because some of your boss, ex-boss or whatever is a gtk maker? Or maybe there are some real reasons? I'm really curious.

    Compositing has nothing to do with 3D, that being said gnome-shell does indeed require OpenGl (and that is not supposed to change) but seriously the attitude should be "fix 3D" not "avoid 3D" ...

    Gnome-Do, though, is a native application. GTK-C# is a officially included language in the regular Gnome stuff. Like python and C language support.
    S basically GnomeDo only uses Gnome libraries and is optimized for gnome(heeds the guidelines for gnome desktop etc..)? I wonder why wasn't it merged into gnome, as it provides a great usability feature.

    And I'm all enthusiastic about the Shell, but it will be a big scary things for many new users(especially those less tech that are scared of everything new or are thinking of switching), but I guess the Gnome team knows what they're doing

    I think dconf commits is largely irrelevant. dconf is a core layer. GNOME programs are not going to be using it directly but via GSettings. Nobody expects all the work to be done by oct. It is merely a starting point for the next release.

    What the hell? What distro are you using because either their Gnome install is messed up or you've somehow broken it... In four years of running Gnome I've never had a desktop that wasn't 'workable' and never had to delete any of Gnome's configuration files.

    I'm even running a pre-release version a quarter of the time too!

    They both work for me...
