I also continue to posit that LWN commenters are a phenomenally poor representation of the average computer user.
Perhaps. Should that be relevant? Personally, I couldn't give a shit about the average computer user. I want something that works for me. And frankly, GNOME 3 isn't it (nor was GNOME 2, FWIW). Despite that, I actually quite like the idea, and in a few years, maybe it will be usable. For now, though, if the defaults work for you then great. If they don't, you're screwed, because there's no way to change anything. I remain concerned that the people behind such an influential desktop environment seem to have explicitly decided to only cater to non-technical people. Sure, they outnumber us. But that doesn't mean those of us with a clue should be ignored.
