    Yes, it can be hard (as well as unnecessary) to draw a line between opinions and exchange of technical facts, during testing discourse.

    However, drive-by comments in the form of "I like/hate GNOME Shell" / "It rocks" / "It's useless" etc. tend to come from people who are not actively testing it, and branch off into long, unproductive discussions of likes and dislikes. Those are the ones we want to avoid in this thread; they can happen in Community Cafe, which is the dedicated forum to that kind of discussion.

    I notice that the calender has been given an update within the last day or so & there is a gconf key now for it....question is: where is the key?

    The calender has grown by 50% with the change & I want to shrink it back to a usable size.....

    Thank You, but I've been there......Yes--it works a treat on the clock (glad to have that control finally!), but the calendar size is not controllable from there---I reread the change log & I was mistaken...it's for the clock & not the calendar. Anyone know where the conf is for it?

    AFAIK GNOME Shell depends on Mutter, so you can't run it with a different WM.

    Too early to tell.

    As I said in the first post, GNOME Shell will be available for Maverick though not default.

    Also, Unity is focused specifically for Netbooks anyway.
    If the only reason you think your software is better is because it's FOSS, you need to write better software

    I was beginning to think I was the only one. I get random distortions of various windows as I go to and from the overlay.

    Running the PPA version. Had to stop as it was impacting my work.


    My home PC has a Nvidia card and runs fine, except for a bit of slowness that I would expect from an early version of software.
