Submission + - Gnome 3.8 Takes a Step Backwards with Classic Mode (linuxadvocates.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Dieter Schmitz of the Linux Advocates writes a poignant review of what he finds is lacking in the latest Gnome 3.8 in Fedora 18:

Today, I thought I would try Gnome 3.8 on Fedora 18. My session was short-lived. After I went through making the extension additions and tested the Desktop, I was left feeling disappointed. I said to myself, this is not classic in the remotest sense of the word.

So, while Gnome may have you believe they are listening to users, I will tell you that they have moved backwards with 3.x so much that I think the whole project should be scrubbed and rewritten starting at 2.34.

That's how badly I feel about what has happened. Sorry but I have to truthful. It is kludgy and awful.
