[clug] GNOME 3 in trouble according to El reg. True or a beat up?

Can I also say, as someone who uses and recommends Gnome 3, that every time
I've used KDE 2, 3 or 4 I've found it highly agreeable and usable and
consider it a job well done. To be fair, likewise winfce. I'm sure I'd have
no issues with many of the other x.org window managers and so on.

I'm sure there's a reason for the fuss that seems to burst out every couple
of years about "linux GUI/Desktop environment/whatever" but I've never
worked out what that reason is beyond silly ones. Maybe it turns out that
I'm not a total muppet (although probably mostly that way) so can work out
how to use whatever-it-is *before* passing judgement on their UI decisions
and drafting mail to lists using words like "evil" "death" "stupid",
"retarded", "chemical fire", "drugs", and "steak with chips".

I'm a bit unorthodox in that I look for good things. I say, deal with that
you f**king muppet a-hole blow-holes who take another approach other than
finding the things you like and using them.

But obviously I'm not very nice at all and I'm really am sorry for that.
