    The GMenu is for GNOME Shell, and I think it sucks, I don't like it. I use GNOME Fallback session.
    To all users who don't use GNOME Shell the GMenu sucks, because it makes all GNOME applications suck when not using GNOME Shell.
    Fair enough... I don't much like it *with* Shell either. I kind of get what they're trying for, but having that "application menu" relocated to the shell panel just doesn't work for me. For starters, it's not particularly obvious that the feature in question is a menu at all, never mind that that's where you might find such things as preferences (or for that matter, the ability to exit the program). And - very unusually for Gnome 3 - it doesn't appear to be keyboard accessible.

    So yeah - unlike you, I'm generally pretty happy with Shell. But this specific feature, not so much.

    Migrate from GSettings and dconf is great.
    Migrate from Python 2 to Python 3 is great.
    Migrate from GStreamer pre-1.0 to 1.0 is great.

    But I don't like the GMenu.

    True of some of them, but not all. Having sensible default names for print to file is a usability-related change, as are the desktop-file keywords and high-contrast icons. And the goal about notification sources is a bit of both - partly an infrastructure cleanup, but also about giving users control over which notifications they want to receive.

    Yet the Gnome haters are always there
