Linus Torvalds goes on about GNOME3 #ui
Some choice quotes:
"Ok, I knew it used to be broken, I knew the work-around, but it's still broken?"
"And I can get panel settings and enable auto-hide so that I don't need to look at that butt-ugly thing that has clearly been designed by some goth teenager that thinks that black is cool."
"the whole gnome3 approach of "by default we don't give you even the most basic tools to fix things, but you can hack around things with unofficial extensions" seems to be a total UX failure."
"Who do I need to fuck to get standard font size and panel options, instead of having to wade through this kind of "unsupported and random extensions that look ugly as hell and break randomly" crap?"
I likes me a good GNOME3 rant.
