Your funny!

I almost put a clause in about "alt tab", but decided you wouldn't be that irrational! I was wrong!

4 windows, ooh is that a lot to you, that's an example case scenario.

Linux, this thread is about gnome, stop going off track.

Face it, gnome has lost the plot, stop trying to defend bad design decisions. Stop with the difference != wrong tired old argument, bad = bad and wrong = wrong!



Q. Have you even answered the OP question?

What kind of clause would that be? one where you refuse to use it? I don't understand how you could someohow exclude a desktop hotkey as trivial and common as alt tab.

Of course 4 is not a lot, you seem to be suggesting that it is.

No idea what that next sentence is meant to be for.

No, gnome hasn't lost the plot, just like how facebook haven't every time they tweak something irrelevant and spawn a thousand hate groups that want it like it was last week, the same people that campaigned about how much they hated how it used to look compared to the time before that...

The general subject of intelligent interface design is 1) really interesting and 2) really hard. Gnome are doing a perfectly good job, and suit many peoples needs really well. Discounting things that you're not used to and don't want to understand just makes you look cliched and narrow minded.

I take it you disagree with my opinion about the new direction gnome are taking and my reasoning for it, when asked. However Mr Troll, you still haven't contributed to this thread other than state that my opinion is inferior to yours.

Why don't you go cause trouble elsewhere troll!

REPORTED!

um, no offense or nothing but are you even paying atention to who it is you're yelling at? acid_kewpie IS a moderator, if you disagree with the moderators do so respectfully. calling the mods trolls is a good way to get yourself banned from this site.

And personally I would rather chew my own face off than use window maker. Assuming it's still recognizable from its 2001 hayday.

np, mind you that site appears to be rather old and a bit out of date (they list the latest kde as 3.4 and the current is 4.something), so i wouldn't try and download anything off of it, but find the sites for the respective software and find out if the project has a more current release, or if you are using a distribution with a package manager, see if they are in the repositories for that distribution.

Many != All

And even if there is no "right" or "wrong" way, that doesn't mean that a person can't prefer one way over another.

For what is worth, I used WM and I liked it a lot, but I preferred G2 over it, for two objective features(better integration and crtical mass) and a subjective one(I found it to be more productive and easier to use).
Anyway, the "paradigms" offered by the two environments were different and called out users with different tastes. For G3, having radically changed the paradigm (if that is the case), is just natural that some of its previous users, like me, don't like it any more.
Finally, and that's exactly the problem, we don't have a choice: either we stick with the crippled G3, crippled because nothing of what I enlisted can be achieved now, and is a totally different environment, or get to another environment altogether.

One thing gnome got right is the need of dynamic languages in GUIs, but WM got this 20 years before. Too bad they're still going to use Gobject.

A viable alternative to using Gnome 3 could be using LMDE as it is NOT based on Ubuntu but rather Debian... Works for me (it's also a rolling distro and very stable)

you realise you're talking nonsense right? how on earth can an entire distribution be a replacement for a Desktop Environment??
