GNOME 3 and Unity, two players on the field… Two players who are almost matched. I won’t say GNOME 3 is as bad as Unity. Now, I’m all for simplicity but none for dumbing down. Seriously, the search for administrative utilities in Ubuntu 11.04 felt like a treasure hunt. Fedora 15 went just as well. I suppose major distros are attempting to aim more for the Linux newcomer. However, I can’t tell whether it is how used to GNOME 2 that I am or whether the “simpler” interfaces are harder to use. Where did my easy to access applications and system menus go? A good tip for all the distro producers out there from us power users and casual but seasoned linux fans, either scrap Unity and GNOME 3 or at least give us an easy option to go without.
