Comment 47 for bug 771896

Rudd-O,

as i replied earlier in this thread, I've been so frustrated by this that
I've already ditched gnome and moved to xfce. It gives me my gnome 2 look
and feel and behavior, including flawless session saving.

Also, future releases of gnome are going to severely curtail the
functionality of nautilus, all on the excuse of being more "user friendly".

I am truly saddened at the things that have happened to gnome since gnome
2. Tablet UIs are all very well, but they don't make sense for a desktop
which is used for much more (by some people at least) than browsing the
internet and consuming media like music and videos. As a programmer/power
user/kernel, i find unity/gnome 3 completely unusable as a desktop
environment.

Speaking for myself, at least, as far as gnome 3/unity is concerned, I'm
afraid that it's a case of "so long and thanks for all the fish / so sad
that it should come to this"...
