Comment 377 for bug 332945

mb_webguy: Perhaps you should take a look at bug number 1 :). While Linux might not care, Ubuntu does.

Really, I'm just scared to death of Gnome 2.30/3.0 modeling too much after Mac - meaning having nothing of real productive value in the GUI (good lord, if there's a dock, I swear I'll kill myself). If this happens, I believe for the first time I'll be considering switching over to KDE. I've always loved GNOME for the two+ years I've used it, and I'd hate for it to get spoiled. Don't get me wrong, I'm welcome to changes in GNOME, but if there isn't a good substitute for the notification area, which seems to be the ultimate victim, I'm afraid I wouldn't be the only one ditching it.

I digress, though. ddumont, even though I agree with you, I feel that aggression won't get us anywhere. MPT knows that the majority of us hate it already. At this point in time, I'm just pleading for an option. Give us an option to keep the notification tray if we end up not liking the alternative presented, and please give us the option of having our updates showing up in there.
