    What's to bet that the same people moaning about Gnome 3 and pointing out how great KDE is are the same people who hated on KDE4 when it game out and pointed out how great gnome was.

    Honestly.

    Haters gotta hate.

    ...
    I hated KDE4 when it went out, I still don't like it that much. I never liked Gnome much.
    I switched to gnome when kde 4.0 was published.
    And of course I didn't witness the feature removal during my use of it much.
    (They did remove few things there an there but not much reason to start hating them.)

    Talking I switched to a Mac.

    Seriously good product these days. You more or less get a BSD UNIX with a good set of apps. Plus the ability to run hundreds of UNIX and X apps. Best of both worlds. Further it puts some real space between me and GPL3.

    Considering the amount of Open source software that Apple does support I actually end up feeling pretty good about the choice. LLVM/CLang are coming along really well offering a real alternative to GCC. All my usual tools are right there or a download away. If not Apple has been pricing commercial software much more reasonably these days.

    In a nut shell I don't have to put up with GNome anymore.

    I would have though most of the crit you hear applied to gnome 3 could be give to lion as well. Lack of customisation. Similar design ideas etc But I got too admit the macbook air Is a fine looking machine. I have thought about getting a mac. But no its not for me.

    If you are really sorry, then just don't troll. Otherwise you are a mere boring hypocrite.

    I don't entirely support all the changes, but the overall impression of GNOME 3.2 for me is great. Just pretty please make a proper GTK2 version of Adwaita (no, both analogs are not good enough).

    True, where would we be without PPAs?

    Michael, I guess this is the first part of an article series, dedicated to rude and hostile expressions. Unsurprisingly haters gonna hate.

    I am looking forward to part two of your survey report with well-chosen samples of constructive criticism.

    Unfortunately, it's quite possible that you need a whole new survey for that, created by someone who doesn't misread things badly and isn't passively aggressive with sudden bursts of active aggression.

    Default Eh.

    I think this might be the last time I respond to a survey on this site. Isn't the usual way of presenting results to wait for the deadline, analyze the results and then present some numbers (with some chosen quotes to back it up if necessary), not to go through the responses one day into it and pick out the worst quotes you can find that supports your preconceived notion, and then proceed to write a troll-article about it. It's possible that the responses that criticizes gnome constitutes the absolute majority for all I know (although I know for a fact that it's not the only kind of response), but these kinds of troll-fluff-filler articles are just.. blargh.

    Unhappy If it bleeds, it leads...

    Solicit drive-by rage. Post sensational headline. This stuff practically writes itself...


    oh.


    Thanks for the "effort", Michael Larrabee.

    Well I have to say from starting to really like Gnome 2, dislike Unity and tried Gnome 3, I am back to Unity and Ubuntu 11.10 and perfectly happy now.

    Gnome 2 is simple and effective, neither Gnome or Ubuntu should hinder the possibility to use and continue development of it.

    Gnome 3 is really still in testing and should be in some staging ground somewhere where it can mature. I consider myself as a pretty good computer user but I cannot figure out why there are so stupid design and functions of Gnome 3 that really hinders and slows down the usage of the system. You should never do as Microsoft and expect the users to be idiots, the worst thought process ever.

    Unity has had a lot of bugs and hasn't been fully mature. But since 11.10 with unity-2d alongside the only bugs I have found is with wine and Unity, and the work flow is really good. The only bad I can say about it is that the Ubuntu team still don't seam to have decided on the design and functions which several have changed between 11.04 and 11.10. I just hope they won't do any drastic changes for 12.04 which you need to get used to.

    And off course I cannot forget to comment about the bad (almost nonexistent) configure options that both Unity and Gnome 3 suffers from. Even though Unity has some hidden away under compiz-config a lot is missing and badly explained.
