- Vertical space wasted (very important for me)
- Fragmented menus (really confusing)
- Broken support for applets (it couldn’t show Dropbox properly without manual tinkering)
So a “state of the art” “modern” DE, welcomes new comers with manual tinkering, plugin hunting for hours, for a somewhat near-what-they-want solution.
Unity was ready out of the box. Gnome is not.
If you support gnome still, don’t whine about people not coming to gnome. It’s their choice to be lazy n dumb.
