Incredible, I have found another one who likes gnome 3. I have left windows to only use ubuntu since many years, but when they changed the desktop I tried mint. I do not like it very much. Then my wife got a laptop with win8. It was terrible. She asked for unix like the main house computer. I installed ubuntu configured with a cynamon desktop.
2 years ago, I bought a computer for my (very old) father. I installed it with ubuntu gnome. I reinstalled my main computer a month ago (mint was outdated and advised a full reinstall). I chose again ubuntu gnome.
I am very happy with gnome 3.

My son is not named Florian because of him: I did not want my son to have the same name as this disgusting guy. All the media were repeating his stupid "analysis" on oracle vs google case. In the end, he was completely wrong on every points. I do not understand how people can give him any credibility. Is it possible on slashdot to blacklist any article that contain his name ?

I fully a agree. My main computer in on linux since many years. It is used as a normal desktop: browser, mail, office, scanner, printer and sometimes for development. I would like to be able to customize my development environment as if it was an independant virtual machine, but with the full power of my computer.
