No need to be an asshole over this.
As far as comparing gnome2 with MicropieceofShit7.... a wooden spoon and a bucket of piss is a better user experience than MicropieceofShit7. Gnome2 is *FAR* from utter crap. Its far more productive, predictable, and intuitive than anything MS or their assbitch Apple have *EVER* come up with. And that's even if you stick it in front of someone who has only ever used microapple.
