I just fired up the MATE desktop and the Linux port of Steam seems to play nice, both with and without Compiz effects.
Couldn't care less, so they can concentrate on the proper UI
Gnome3 is one of the best desktops I used so far, next best would be any of the tiling WM. Maybe we get tiling support in some future release as well (I know there are tiling extensions but they are not working automatic).
Gnome3 and Unity is really a kindergarten I'm glad to be a KDE user!
And the funny part is the best argument for KDE isn't any feature of KDE its just the other Desktops and there behaviour what makes KDE the best solution.
Gnome3/Unity people really act like child’s.
At the rate they are removing things Gnome3 Shell will disappear into a singularity pretty soon hehehe
This is great news, the less people use this pathetic wannabee phone screen desktop the better for all us.
Keep it up Gnome dev's! All two of you! Honestly, you're doing us all a big favour!
And from a outsider point of view they are a big kindergarten...
KDE thats professional to not force people into a bad/slow solution for there outdated/ultra low power hardware.
Yes i don't write only "Outdated" because ultra low power computers are a modern green solution.
