Thank you for telling the truth...
    Here is a clue for you; ALL screens will get touch functionality. It has hit all formfactors. Tabs, laptop and desktops and TV sized panels are coming. It is NOT up to you and fellow gnome haters to decide what are appropiate ways to control a computer. It is 2013 and deliberately excluding touch is as stupid as excluding mouse or keyboard control. Go back to a former decade if you cant deal with 2013.

    I suggest you take dated non touch software like KDE and head back to the 80s. Go play MC Hammer -you cant touch this on amarok or likewise shit.

      Yeah, of course, do some serious work on a desktop with a 27" touchscreen for 8 hours a day and then come back and don't complain about the pain in your arms.
      I suggest you take your "touch everywhere" attitude and try it, before making such ridiculous comments.

        LOL. No one uses touch for 8 hours on a big screen. Thats a strawman you are shooting down to avoid accepting the POSSIBILITY to use touch is a NICE FEATURE. Gnome3 was designed with this in mind.

          As well as Enlightenment and KDE, both also have a mode aimed at touchscreens. There was no need to redesign the complete interface for this.

            Who said the only reason for the redesign was to make it work on tablets?
            No one is contesting that touch interfaces were kept in mind, but the only reason? I think not.
            Regardless: GNOME3 works fine on a regular computer. So, having it work on touch interfaces as well is hardly a bad thing. Whether they'll pull that off, is another question.

              I was just pointed out the nonsense posted by funkSTAR, who feels entitled to judge about software that he doesn't know the features of and the nonsense of the "touch is this decade, if you don't like it go back a decade"-attitude, which funnily somewhat resembles the "Gnome 3 is this decade, if you don't like it go back a decade"-attitude of the same type of members.

              There are other DEs and WMs that have touch as a feature, but also keep themselves to follow the "so 80's" desktop paradigm.

              As I see it, and this is only my opinion, of course YMMV, Gnome Shell aimed at being the next big thing in mobile DEs. They failed at that, there is not one device in the mobile space that comes with Gnome Shell. The problem is that they alienated their existing (and at that point largest ) userbase with that move and ended up with an interface that is not present on mobile devices but caused a serious drop in the number of Gnome users.
              People still use Gnome 3, but many do it with Unity, Cinnamon or in the future with Consort as interface.

                What do you expect from a badly disguised troll?

                As I remember it there was more a "let's make sure this stuff works good for touch", and not so much "we are going for the mobile market". Therefore I don't think it is strange at all that there are no tablets, since no push for this has been done, as far as I am aware.

                Yes, some people (quite obviously) does not agree with the new interface. I still don't think the impact was really that big as some people make it sound.

                    Now you are getting desperate. No one wants to waste time on finding or uploading vids in compliance to your strawman.

                    I remember seeing gnome3.2 on a desktop/workstation screen controlled by touch. It is more than a year old. Today we have touch everywhere, even HYBRID laptops which also have tablet modes. Do you want your software change mode according to your available control methods? Or do you want your software to be compatible with touch? Gnome did make a wise choice here.

                    Calling a touch enabled UI a "phoneOS" or "tabletOS" is soooo stupid. The irony to this is KDE. They went the wrong path or was forced to go this way by Nokia. Because Nokia needed the split. THEY were all about phones and didnt want to be held back by desktop KDE; Thus Qt needed a new tablet/phoneOS. This is the main reason for plasma activity being outside traditional KDE. Now KDE is hampered by this illogical idea of "new software mode for every form factor". Besides the stupidity hitting hybrid laptop users it also have a technical debt. One example is kwins stupid approach to CSD.
