> You're not presenting facts, just your opinion.

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

Etc, etc.

If you look at what you state, it seems for instance that you like to minimize windows. You can only do that in a inperfect way and by default that is hidden.

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.
