    Default Gnome 3 isn't good enough for RedHat

    If it's not good enough for RedHat ...

    Erm, Classic Mode is a part of GNOME 3. It is the Shell with a set of extensions.

    They should have thrown their weight behind Mate and told Gnome to take their shitty UI and devs that don't listen out to the bridge and throw it in the river like a sack of unwanted kittens.

    Harsh yes, but this is what Gnome deserves.

    Lightbulb Xfce

    Might as well use XFCE. It can be tweaked with minimal effort to look like Gnome 2x and It's based on GTK like Gnome. Everybody acts so afraid of XFCE for some reason, like the Cousin you never want to be around yet have no reason for it. And don't even try to argue with me, I'm sitting here at my desk right now with Xubuntu looking just like Gnome 2x, which by default is stocked with GTK Apps where possible. There is nothing to be lost unless those Corporate people actually care about wobbly windows, in which case installing Compiz is a snap.

    That's funny, since IIRC the most vocal supporters and the originators of gnome shell are all on the payroll of Red Hat.

    That the RHEL team doesn't like Shell is proof that it shouldn't exist. That Red Hat funds hundreds of projects doesn't mean that their core eam approves of what many of those projects are doing.

    Not an adequate solution. Mate/Gnome2 is still the only desktop worth using. LXDE and XFCE still don't match up to Gnome2.

    Gnome 2 wasn't broken and didn't need fixing. Perhaps the Gnome devs should have been more mature about how the handled the situation. As it stands I have no support for them just as KDE lost me with KDE4, even though their moronic "force everything to have the letter K shoehorned into it" based naming scheme never totally won me over.

    Mate is doing it the right way, using the long proven good desktop and adding in only the bits of Gnome3 that are actual improvements over what already exists in Gnome2 instead of trying to reinvent the wheel after downing 2 liters of vodka and beating your self in the head with a hammer for a week.

    Default RHEL 7 - Great Choice

    Distros going to composited 3D desktop libs and touch-centric design has driven away people who use Linux on refurb hardware, VMs, remotes/terminals, etc.

    These are the scenarios where Linux used to shine (where windows can't compete). But its been a mess the last few years.

    It's great news that we might have a modern distro that forgoes developer ego, in favor of actual usability.

    Classic mode is a composited 3D accelerated desktop - it's the Shell with a set of extensions - and the design of the basic Shell is not remotely touch-centric. Have you tried using it on a touch screen? It doesn't work that well.
