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 remember them) 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' doesn't 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? - -- Cheers / Saludos, Carlos E. R.
