    Can't say I like the default paste action of the middle mouse button. In Firefox, accidentally pressing it means it goes to the last URL I had highlighted, or throws an error if the last highlighted thing wasn't a URL...

    Heh, this is silly...

    Also, I still think that gnome 3.10 should be just re-named to 3.0 and we could make pact with the devs that we will forget all the shit they did in exchange for normal linux-like development

    Also, MATE is dying legacy, but XFCEs development is soooooo slooooow and it have half the features... Cinnamon seems the normal way to go, but do they have enough manpower to fork WHOLE gnome?

    In fact I've seen similar "nicety GUIs over regedit" for Windows too, some even from Microsoft themselves.

    Feel free to argue that some options belong in the "basic" options (lacking a better word), because I think there are a few cases as well, but you could perhaps at least try to avoid being totally misleading?
    If you take a look at what gnome-tweak-tool does, it changes Gnome's registry. This makes it in function similar to regedit.

    I know it's not dconf-editor but looks more like a settings panel. That doesn't change the fact its choices change Gnome registry.

    The most important "missing options" are available in gnome-tweak-tool (such as font settings). I agree font settings should be available somewhere in the normal preferences, but its silly how some people totally disregard the tweak tool because its not the "regular preferences" or such similar silly arguments.
    Those lack of customization ones are extremely good arguments. If it's not configurable by default, it's not configurable by the majority.

    That's just the phoronix forum team of "expert" analysts. They always give their objective, unbiased commentary on everything just for our benefit! Through their efforts to extinguish the flames of ignorance, I've learned to hate Gnome, Mono, AMD graphics, Ubuntu, Mir, Nvidia, emacs, etc.

    Dear Gnome, and the retarded designers who hate users, fuck you. Enough said.

    MATE is a more featurefull desktop than XFCE. XFCE was always the lightweight alternative to GNOME.

    Last I heard was that XFCE are sticking with the obsolete GTK2, where as MATE are migrating to GTK3. MATE have already removed most of the old deprecated GNOME libraries.
