    Of course I can add and remove packages only to the extent that no conflicts arise. And the available PPAs only go so far.

    The worst pain for me is the custom keyboard shortcuts and media-keys in g-s-d, which are broken because they still sit in Gconf.
    You're in luck! Please see guitara's latest call for testing as the gsettings keyboard shortcuts work is almost ready to land in Ubuntu.

    I think part of the issue is that the GNOME Online Accounts (GOA) developers were stingy about what services they'd allow to be added, which means that Evolution & Empathy still need separate accounts preferences windows which means GOA isn't very useful. On the other hand, I'm not happy with Ubuntu Online Accounts as it looks to be just an alternative GUI for Empathy accounts and so we still need GOA for Contacts, Documents, etc.

    No, why would we do that?

    Well I asked to see how thorough the push to close the gap to upstream will be. If you will, how much chocolate flakes will remain in your stracciatella flavor.

    These gesture patches were crash prone earlier. I remeber that I had to push an eog without those patches to my PPA, because I had had to live without eog for months on my work PC because it would segfault on startup every time.

    A telling quote from that article, regarding Nautilus:

    Is Files 3.6 overall better than Files 3.4? I let this to you to judge. But I can say that is prettier. Much prettier. And for me that counts a lot. More than functionality.
    Um, yeah. That tells me not to trust much of what he says.

    I don't think pretty is more important than functionality. I want both!

    You don't know. I'm just saying that I don't think "pretty" is more important than "functionality." I'm not saying you have to agree with me.

    I do like "pretty," though, so I'd like to have both, too.

    Exactly, we all are entitled to our own opinion, even a person that makes a review, but that doesn't make him less trustworthy in my book.

    Be positive, love your Gnome (3.6)

    Because they don't fit Unity? No. I just don't like changes that are silly like:

    You
    Everyone Else
    Some Other Dude

    That is downright ridiculous. (Changes to Permissions)

    I hope for you and all other Ubuntu users that Gnome is not dying, because that would mean that Ubuntu and Unity is dying too, Ubuntu and Unity relies on Gnome3.

    Don't be a grouch, embrace and love your Gnome, you depend on Gnome to have your desktop working.

    Here is a good site to follow the Gnome development and the features of Gnome.
    http://worldofgnome.org/

    Ps.
    The desktop I have become so fond of and really love for it's innovation , vision and persistence in creating, what I think is one of, if not, the best desktop interfaces today, has become 15 years old.

    Happy Birthday Gnome !

    When can first Gnobuntu image be expected? Will it be also provided through Ubuntu website, like Xubuntu eg?
    It can be serious contender for most Ubuntu family member. Gnome-shell is lighter and more customizable than Unity-3d right now, and Ubuntu already "naturally" integrates Gnome.
