LWN.net Weekly Edition for November 21, 2013
I know I wrote on this before, but just so that we are clear:
- fact: it takes significantly more mouse/GUI actions to change a workspace in Gnome 3
- fact: it is impossible to see on which workspace you are in Gnome 3, without many mouse/GUI actions (amazingly, even with extensions)
- fact: there is enough screen pixels to overlay applications menu on a desktop screen (search included)
- fact: Gnome 2 panel had autohide feature
- fact: when minimised, windows in Gnome 3 go into oblivion
- fact: in overview, minimised windows in Gnome 3 appear as normal windows
- fact: Gnome 3 window manager arbitrarily maximises windows
- fact: it is impossible to remove/move an icon in Gnome 3 panel without writing code
- fact: every time one wants to start an app, almost every single pixel on the screen is changed in Gnome 3; this is terrible for performance when working remotely

Your personally like to hide windows. But then your personal ideas don't make things a fact.
Or otherwise stated:
A -> B -> C
A: You like minimizing windows
B: GNOME 3 doesn't really do that
C: GNOME 3 is no good (for you)
But you cannot state in general that GNOME 3 is no good based on this. I'm not arguing that minimizing windows can or cannot be done. Just that you lack a 'fact' to show that something like that is needed (in general). That bit is personal. This is what I meant before with not presenting facts.
