GNOME 3.8 Released Featuring New "Classic" Mode 267

Posted by Unknown Lamer
from the extend-freely dept.
Hot on the heels of the Gtk+ 3.8 release comes GNOME 3.8. There are a few general UI improvements, but the highlight for many is the new Classic mode that replaces fallback. Instead of using code based on the old GNOME panel, Classic emulates the feel of GNOME 2 through Shell extensions (just like Linux Mint's Cinnamon interface). From the release notes: "Classic mode is a new feature for those people who prefer a more traditional desktop experience. Built entirely from GNOME 3 technologies, it adds a number of features such as an application menu, a places menu and a window switcher along the bottom of the screen. Each of these features can be used individually or in combination with other GNOME extensions."

    The problem with KDE is it's unbelievable ugliness. It looks plasticky and cheap, like a chinese made toy.

    Don't use the 'Plastick' theme, then.

    you ask the person for what you want.

    Ask the assistant. You have obviously never been to Walmart! Hint: the most successful store in the USA.

    What you do is go down an aisle of relevant stuff, till you get to the section which has that kind of thing, and then look up and down. This is like having a menu bar with drop-downs with slide outs.

    Your mileage may suck!
