Re:Gnome is annoying

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 17, 2007 10:23 AM
I'm a fairly long-time Gnome user. As long as Debian has supported Gnome, I've used it. That said, I'm VERY disappointed in the current state of Gnome. I USED to be able to configure just about everything. Now I can't even edit the freakin menus - they REMOVED the menu editor!!! What, I'm supposed to hand code obscure XML files now??? WTF is that all about????

Nope, in my next refresh, I'll be moving to KDE. I just can't handle the stupidity of Gnome anymore.

Hint to the Gnome team: Removing configurability does not make the system easier to use: It makes it IMPOSSIBLE to use.
