    The same could be said about any news source actually.

    They moved the buttons.

    You aren't allowed to move the buttons. Otherwise all the guys who have to have three terminals open simultaneously get upset.

    Nice. A thread about "Gnome Shell hate" displays so many more hateful words towards those who offer criticism than toward Gnome Shell.

    I've tried it, and I find it extremely inefficient and counterproductive to my workflow. I like using the mouse, but I don't like how much more I have to move the mouse and how many more times I have to click the buttons to get anything done. It also lacks an always-visible task selector, which I rely on heavily in my day-to-day activities. This complaint has been made and ignored several times, so it's really more about frustration than hate in my own experience.

    I used it for a while back in it's beta, and thought it was pretty cool. I'd probably have seriously considered making it the prime desktop environment for me, if I hadn't fallen in love with KDE4 so hard.

    Do you know about tint panel? It's in the repositories. I don't know if that's what you're looking for or not. It's available for both Unity & Gnome-panel and can be made either always present or hide.

    Re: Why all the Gnome Shell Hate?

    Imho, a lot of the replies here don't "get it".

    Why is Gnome3 and the Gnome shell a pita for most former Gnome users? Because they took something that wasn't broke, and they, ahem, "fixed it". Pointless. Because they took something that used to be two mouseclicks of effort away, and made it 3, 4, or more mouse-clicks away. Or they made it so you can't mouse-click to it at all.

    Why is Unity only a tiny bit better than Gnome3? Because at least the designers seem to remember the end user, whereas the Gnome designers seem to have taken the stance that they know best.

    Why do both of them fail? For the same reason that MOVING THE BUTTONS is a fail. It takes something that isn't broken, and breaks it so they can achieve some goal that the devs think is important. But the market doesn't agree. For all of you saying that moving the buttons was minor, you need to sit down and drink a TALL cup of java with lots of caffeine, and wake up. All those people who got bothered deserve your respect. Just because something didn't bother YOU doesn't mean it was right or good or anything. And it doesn't mean the ppl who got bothered were drama queens.

    It wasn't just the change that bothered people. It was the change FOR NO PURPOSE. And, it is a change that requires re-learning habits built over a long time, again, for no apparent reason! OF COURSE you're going to get blowback over that, and you should!

    For the comments saying the Win users aren't upset over Win8 - you need to read a bit more. They are. They also find it easier to install a couple of quick hacks then they do to switch brands. So far. But, Win8 COULD be an opportunity for linux, as some ppl WILL be energized sufficiently to switch brands. IF we are poised to take advantage of it. Which we currently aren't.

    Why all the Gnome shell hate? Because it doesn't work as well for most users. Simple enough to understand, you'd think. Imho, gnome shell and the current version of Unity are dead-ends. I can't give them to grandma and expect her to be productive without my help. She won't do it. Too much like work.
