Well yes there are other applets I going to miss, but you have to start somewhere and my somewhere is getting the basic desktop setup as I need, I can then go on from there.On 11-06-20 05:56 AM, Rowland Penny wrote:I now have Gnome 3 set up as I would like, a proper menu, instead of (in my opinion) that mess meant for a touchscreen, the ability to minimise programs to a lower taskbar and change to another desktop at a click of a mouse.I guess you don't miss all of the useful panel applets that used to exist pre-gnome3 then yes? Personally I liked to know what the weather was outside, at a glance, and how well the resources of the machine were being used. I frequently find it useful to see at a glance whether some process has gone rogue and consuming CPU, memory or network, etc. Yes, ideally I would not need that applet and everything would just behave, but that's just not based in reality and keeping an eye on resources for rogue processes is still quite necessary. b._______________________________________________ gnome-list mailing list gnome-list@xxxxxxxxx http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-list
I would also like to add that I think that not enough people were asked what was required from gnome 3 before it was designed. By people I mean everyday users not developers or power users, I certainly did not know it was coming until it was well into development.
I would also like to add that I think that the developers have thrown the baby out with the bath water here, just like KDE did with version four, I still cannot get on with the way KDE works now.
I do hope that developers take on board the large amount of complaints etc that are floating about on the internet, swallow their pride and admit that they got it wrong (but then again this only my opinion)
