    Started with ubuntu-gnome the upgraded from there, only problem was I didn't upgrade libbluetooth something, that prevented getting a gdm login screen till fixed.

    Looking at the 3.90 nautilus - it's, to me, god-awful design. Seems unbalanced, wastes space by truncating the path/location bar, leaving a big space to search button. Then there is the close 'button' which is sitting right on the edge & isn't even a button.
    Guess I don't understand design, to me the default, as in screen, looks like a piece of paper I'd crumple up & throw away.

    On a positive note, the dnd hover opening the hovered folder seems a bit more delayed in 3.9 compared to 3.8 where I had to disable in one of the 4.5 used places to make usable.

    On a neg. note can't stand the way synaptic resets package list after choosing a package, can make for needless scrolling back

    Didn't look a keyboard shortcuts much other than ctrl+alt+T didn't work, does so after a simple reset
    Amen and +1

    Re: GNOME3 Staging PPA

    gdm & libgdm upgrades came rolling in this morning.

    I was hopeful, but all they did was get rid of the hideous blue gnome curtains, when gdm crashes xorg.

    Now, I get a black screen and white mouse pointer, instead blue curtains. LoL!

    Oh, well. I guess it's an improvement...

    I suspect that's what I'll need to do, but...

    I'm not ready to give-up, yet.

    I'm running on top of a Liquorix 3.10 kernel right now.

    I'll try the 3.11 mainline kernel, after I submit this...

    EDIT

    3.11 Final booted up just fine, also.

    Heh! They fixed it. Good job, devs!

    Unity hasn't worked in months. Seg faults on me...

    My understanding is Gnome3 & Unity went in two different directions.

    Don't know if they'll ever fix it.
