    This is one of the reasons I love ubuntu gnome and Jeremy. Follow gnome completely/truthfully (Remember, our initial goal is to attract gnome developers?). This is also the reason that give me the feel/confidence that I might continue using ubuntu gnome for a long time.

    Yeah, I'd prefer to see all of the "flavors" stay as close as possible to upstream. That means keep Lubuntu as close as possible to LXDE, Xubuntu as close as possible to Xfce, etc, etc. Of course that means not breaking anything for Ubuntu itself which I'm sure is incredibly challenging.

    The biggest challenge for me ATM is deciding which DE I truly prefer. I feel like a kid in a candy store

    Oh well, that's just how it is in the Free Software world. Egos sometimes get in the way of cooperation. I guess that's just how it is in the world, period.
    They tried offering gnome-shell extensions instead of cinnamon at first. Extensions weren't powerful/flexible enough to do what they wanted. Cinnamon was a reasonably sensible fork, unlike MATE.

    I didn't realize there was so much intolerance and hate towards the MATE DE in these forums, I apologize for my suggestion.

    I hope You'll all play nice now and stay on topic.
    ( but honestly I couldn't care less )

    I just have doubts about the security of using old Gnome 2 forked apps in a newer Gnome distro
