Narcissistic people never admit they are wrong. The power Gnome foundation holds over Linux Desktop is too grave for them to fail us like this. They should be held accountable.Quote:
What I'm trying to say is that a lot (if not most) of the code that gets into these projects is useless and is actually doing more harm than good. Just because they write that code and not me does not take away my right to say that their DE is shit (and also not use it). What really pisses me off is that they have a perfectly useable DE and then they come up with a new user experience or whatever they call it these days that ruins it. It cripples the mind! How can you have a perfectly usable interface and just decide to fuck it up? And then when you tell them that what they did is no good they tell you that you're insane and you should bow down to them since it wasn't you who wrote it!
If I make a decision should I expect everybody to accept it just because it was my decision? Did they ask anybody if their new desktop paradigm was any good? No, they just assumed they were right. People still want to use the fallback mode. They don't want to support it. Why? Cause they just don't since they like their new desktop better. But their new desktop isn't usable (I think you know I am not the only one believing that) so shouldn't they at least consider that they might not be right? And you'll say but it's their desktop they can do whatever they want with it you're not contributing and of course they can! But I think most people don't want them to fail! That is why we try to tell them that what they did doesn't work! If we did want them to fail we just wouldn't use it and move on to something else! Why if somebody tells you you fucked up you take it as a personal insult? Sometimes you do fuck up! But to continue to fuck it up when a lot of people tell you you're fucking it up and not consider them is just plain stupidity! I and other people don't want gnome to go to fuck! I used gnome until the 3 version. I even tried gnome shell for a few days. It just doesn't work as it should. It's annoying.
Is it really that hard to think that maybe the new desktop paradigm was a mistake? Nothing wrong with trying something new. But not everything that you try is gonna be a success. Accept it and move on.
