Well, like I said, it's a good thing there are options, then, isn't it?
It doesn't speak well of gnome if people that have been using it for a more than a decade have to migrate.
Change is difficult. But things change. <shrug>
Some programs I don't know the calling name. And others I have to use long lines with options. Here (G2) I have an applet that shows a list of the previously used commands. That applet exists in fallbackmode in G3. Why not in full G3 mode? I don't understand why I can not add applets.
I'll admit that the command history is something I would like to see come back. Seems like a good feature request to make of the GNOME 3 team.
I have only two workspaces, and I have not seen yet how to add more (I work with 12 in this machine running G2).
In G3, workspaces are dynamic. Drag a window to an empty workspace, and a new one opens up. I *really* like that.
Yes, that's a good feature. But I can not order them in a matrix with rows and columns, as I do in G2.
For me, I don't need a matrix, but that's me.
But who defines what is constructive criticism? If when I start to talk I'm accused of being a troll? :-/
Did I accuse you of being a troll? No. You're discussing specifics. You didn't just say "GNOME 3 is stupid!" and walk away.
I have often, over the years, asked questions about how to do things in gnome, and more often than not, they go unanswered. Do we have to aggressively rant in the wrong list to get explanations on how to do things, to get the help I need?
No - it does in fact help to ask in the right place. :) Jim -- Jim Henderson Please keep on-topic replies on the list so everyone benefits -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com To contact the owner, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
