    Gosh, revive Unity already. You can use whatever GNOME apps you want, but ditch the GNOME Shell.

      Hopefully, they can push GNOME towards becoming more user friendly - instead of being just different in every regard.

        Unfortunately not even the recently released Ubuntu 18.04 with GNOME 3.26 seem to support colored emojis. 😭

        GNOME Shell is quite okay with some customizations. Example Classic extensions, or dash-to-dock or dash-to-panel.

          If you have 4K monitor maybe, otherwise having empty title bar, even for full screen window is not OK. Having app menus in the title bar again is super convenient and sleek.
          Tried GNOME Shell, too much wasted vertical space and ugly.

            I don't know. After using GNOME for the past year (or so), I feel awkward every time I need to use Windows. GNOME Shell doesn't get in my way, I kind of like their vision of different.

              Have been using Gnome 3 for about 5 years (from 3.04 or something like that).

              The only extension I really need in gnome is Hide Top Bar. Using that I got to use the whole screen for windows. Actually it's one of the reasons I ended up loving Gnome over the classic Desktop Environment (like KDE or XFCE) layout, I just have full screen windows and when I want something else it's just a Windows key + some typing away (and the search functionality has improved considerably over the years). As everyone who cares for efficiency knows, keyboard >> mouse.

              I can understand it not being appropriate for your workflow, and that's okay. It's the nice thing about having choices.

                  That is my main problem with Gnome 3 right now. All the bars are so large. A lot of people are stuck with 1366x768 screens (on cheap laptops). Every vertical line counts man.
