I actually like gnome 3. I like how it simplifies the workflow (note however, the removal of various settings and customizations drives me nuts). I like how gnome-3 makes the system-tray sexy autohidden. Not to mention how well it runs on my system.
But thats about it. KDE beats gnome in every area otherwise. I.... just wish it'd run more smoothly on my system. And that the back button on the mouse would work in dolphin.
I'd take enlightenment over unity any day if I'd feel bold and craving for something new & fresh ;-)
One feature removal that annoys the hell out of me in gnome 3 is removal of the ability to scroll between tabs while hovering the pointer over the tab bar since its "confusing for the user". What kind of arrogant attitude is this to the desktop user??
You've found a bug, congrats... No but realy, KDE's on a right path. I realy can't say that Gnome 3 is on any path.Quote:

Both KDE Plasma Workspace and GNOME Shell have been interesting concepts when people first talked about it lots of years ago.
Time has passed, computer usage and needs have changed... and now both of them suck tbh. If it wasn't for Unity, which I think is great, I would have given up on desktop Linux entirely.
Let's add Android, ChromeOS, Moblin and Unity to the schisms. All of these are corporate-sponsored. The fact that the corporate entities don't work together to build a single product shows that they don't care about the long-term viability of the software. For the hardware manufacturers (Google and Intel), the software can go to *ell after they've sold devices containing it. In fact, I'm sure some higher ups see the the lack of cross-pollination as a good thing, since they get to keep improvements to themselves.
oh this takes me back in time... 2007 to be exact: http://zerias.blogspot.com/2007/09/q...tk-impact.html
Oh yeah, that's right; even XFCE 4.8 beats the shit out of speed, features and workflow.
Could you please tell me what part of Gnome 3 actually still resembles a DESKTOP environment?
