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.
I don't find that having to click on the top
left, then another click to
choose "applications" then to the top right to click on a category (on a
touchpad, which means lifting my finger at least twice because once does
not traverse the entire screen), and then reading a big list with small
letters, left to right and top to bottom, to be ergonomic (and
page-up/dn do not work).
I don't click, I use the so-called "Windows" key. Though more often I
find myself using the dock extension and alt+f2 to launch programs than
going to the activities screen.
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 also like an
applet with the hour and the temperature, of several
cities. Now I can't.
I would like that, yes. But it's not a necessity for me to do my work.
In fact, I find that without that, I spend less time wondering about
stuff like that and tend to be more focused on what I'm actually working
on. I'm more productive.
But it is my choice to have those applets. It has been taken away!
(the cities are those in which I have relatives or deep friends. I want to
The main problem is that I am less productive because things I knew how to
do for more than a decade, now I don't.
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.
So no, I will
not say to those that rant in public that they should not.
Because it is pointless. Even if I agree with some of the points, and
disagree on the tone.
I'm not telling people to not criticize things they don't like. But such
criticism, if it's to be met with anything more than "Oh, 'x'
like this. That's too bad." needs to be actually constructive criticism,
or reported either as a bug or a feature request.
But who defines what is constructive criticism? If when I start to talk I'm
accused of being a troll? :-/
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?
