    Default GNOME 3.x Shell Isn't Yet Primed For FreeBSD

    Phoronix: GNOME 3.x Shell Isn't Yet Primed For FreeBSD

    While the GNOME 3.x Shell is working its way around to most major Linux distributions, within the BSD world, it's still mostly a GNOME 2.30 world...

    Frankly I don't think GNOMES Hell is primed for Linux either.

    I disagree. After trying countless desktop environment alternatives (even the most exotic ones), from lightweight to tiling and beyond, with an eye to usability and the other to performance, memory & power usage, I decided to give another try to the "big and bloated" ones. KDE is worse than I remembered - cute but horribly slow and memory hungry. Gnome 2 was a bit better (performance wise) but I still liked Xfce and Openbox more. I always stayed away from Gnome 3 because I didn't like the idea of having a javascript/css engine behind its shell, plus it was GNOME... but I decided to try it and, honestly, it's the best and most functional DE I have tried to date.

    A lot of people do, but it's definitely not my cup of tea, and I'm sure it's not for many others too.

    I like unity, I think it makes an excellent interface for a laptop.

    Gnome 3 -out of the box- is stupid beyond repair.

    Who on earth had the fuckin idea to make it require more clicks and navigation for a task than previous versions.

    Gnome is surprisingly fast and efficient despite the javascript/css engine. I also like how well mutter works these days.

    I fully agree with you and it's the best I've tried to date too.
    Although one should note that I've only really given GNOME, KDE and XFCE a full thorough try.
