    If you had ever worked on a project with the almighty Ali/amjjawad you would petition no - and I have. You would scream it. He is a dictator who knows nothing about technology. Just look at his ToriOS project:

    He very recently killed it out of micro-managing incompetence. The man is incompetent and Ubuntu Gnome is lucky to have come together at all.

    I agree that Gnome 3 out of the box is a bit of a train-wreck in terms of usability, but what I discovered is now that gnome-shell has been around for a while there's lots of extensions that make it highly configurable and I have to confess I like what I can do with it.

    But what I can do with it is nothing like the default behavior. :)

    Why does Canonical keep fixing things that aren't broken, things that everybody's happy with? Ubuntu doesn't want to be Apple, nor does it want to be Windows. Ubuntu wants to be Ubuntu.
