Submission + - GNOME 3.4 Usability Problems - Does GNOME care about its users? (

brad-x writes: "As reported earlier, GNOME 3.4 is out. This release brings added emphasis on touch and a new emphasis on fullscreen apps, similar to those found in MacOS X.

Unfortunately this new focus on fullscreen apps — which will continue through future GNOME versions to include quite a number of other GNOME applications, provides no discoverable way to revert to a standard windowed multitasking model.

Users both old and new have raised their voices in complaint regarding GNOME 3, but the project's lead developers insist everyone will get used to it. Do they care about their users?"

No problem is so formidable that you can't just walk away from it. -- C. Schulz
