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.
Perhaps you don't understand my original criticism. Gnome Shell does not do anything useful with the desktop nor do they support nautilus controlling the desktop. Whether or not code from nautilus is going to be placed in a different component is irrelevant unless Gnome Shell has plans to use that component. I doubt they do, because putting useful things anywhere but in the overlay does not follow their design strategy.Originally Posted by bkor
Or they could just dump it and switch to a GUI that's actually useful out of the box, as so many previous Gnome 2 users have done.
Many developers have priority to work on core functionality and will including extras one coming from the extensions as demonstrated by the incoming Gnome Classic. The key point is look at the reason of the refusal and find a better way to communicate in a respectful manner.
