Enough beating around the bush. GNOME 2 was one of the best desktop envrionments ever. Then the culture of the GNOME team got completely out of whack and they have spent all of their time since making Linux worse for everyone. We rewarded them for making the best desktop by giving them the most market share, then they just waved that big cock all over the scene, undermining their project and fragmenting the ecosystem. The fault for Linux desktop fragmentation can be placed squarely at their feet. Fuck you, GNOME.
