Since always, strawman. The point was it's a bastion of gnome and percentage of gnome users in Fedora is quite small.And since when is Fedora not a major distribution?
They don't listen to users and this is also a fact that you even confirmed. So, they're some kind of sect with some strange vision? Ignoring smart critique just to follow some idiotic vision is well... idiotic.As for GNOME devs listening to critics. I see plenty of stuff that has changed due to user feedback (recent GNOME classic is one example).
Ignoring critique that goes against the overall vision of the project is a good thing. You just happen to believe it is a bad thing since you don't like the vision.
I for one think it is great that there is some kind of vision.
Like what?No, they were criticized a lot for fixing "problems that did not exist", and for "regressions/missing features".
Nope and they keep removing features - Nautilus. Current version is just a joke.Note that I agree that there was some features that went missing when you upgraded from GNOME 2.32 to 3.0. But they have crept back and current version is actually just awesome.
I answered intellivision about something like krunner - supposedly used in a keyboard centered workflow - vs launching applications via a full screen launcher. My answer is that a properly done full screen launcher is as good as a top bar for such job. The same is true of gnome-do and can be true of searchable menu systems like in cinnamon or other environments.
I did not write anything about Gnome shell being specifically faster than any of the other good options, nor did I set up any straw man.
What I did say is that the design of the application launcher as a full screen interface makes sense for an intrinsically disrupting operation such as starting a new application. On the other hand someone finds gnome shell's overview too distracting as a task switcher. I can't really say how much of that is simply the habit of having a task bar, but I'm glad they are getting one with official support in 3.8
I don't know who you're assigning to your mythical "you people" group, but you're barking under the wrong tree here. I'm simply interested in UI design, whatever OS and DE I can find useful ideas in.

Gnome Classic (using well crafted extensions) made Cinnamon moot.
You can use shortcut keys to navigate. Having several windows from the same applications: use Alt+`This is a problem with large amounts of windows open, and the traditional fix is application grouping. Personally I prefer it without grouping to save a click since I usually don't have over 10 windows open on each workspace.
How? Which method?Faster.
