This is not about being smart or well balanced. This is just d... measuring. Now it is confirmed that mr LT is on gnome so that will be told like a million times. Just like it was during the short periods of mr LTs use of XFCE or KDE. Back then it was seen as a sign gnome was dead. Just like some cherrypicked blog posts. That was all total shit. Now the tides have turned and the anti-gnome boon squad get the treatment. Lol.
Tiling was rather basic, ok, but just slapped on top, dragging a window out of tiling by mistake was getting on my nerves and the modes were funky... but yeah it made me curious to try real tiling managers and I ended up with i3 ( www.i3wm.org )
Oh yeah and Linus HATED plasmoids. So they are shit and gnomes extensions are a million times better.
They are the same fucking thing, dude.
