You forgot that Gnome Shell was installable in parallel as a preview until major change of library. You have been informed about disruptive change before but choose to disregard it for the sake of selfiness. Let alone you seem too cheap to download a live media for your optical disk or usb drive.
You can go that "users/journalists suck and GNOME developers are super awesome and never do anything wrong" attitude while you perfectly describe what you do in the same post "I'm right, you are wrong". Some journalists are supposed to be objective but, in Gnome case, displayed the level of fanaticism and extreme bias.
" I really like GNOME 2. Why not let me keep using your code? Why force me to a buggy 3.0 with a completely different workflow that you knew technical users would hate?"
You liked Gnome because it matured in time, did you like it on its first release? Every desktop environment on early release has their own quirks. You knew the development of Gnome 3 for long time back to 2008, were warned about incompatibility yet scream.
My comments might be below LWN standard, so are so called Gnome critics without anything constructive.
