I really like Gnome3

Filed under
Software

The subject says it all. Since Gnome3 was released, or even in the works, all I’ve read about it is negative. I assume there must be posts that compliment it too, but forever reason, I’ve only run into what is now termed “Gnome bashing”. I’m not going analyse why people don’t like the new design; neither am I going to summarize why people should like it; I’m going to write down why it works for me.

The first thing I must list are my requirements. When I boot up my system, and login, without a thought, I run the following programs, in order:

1. Gnome-terminal for a byobu/screen instance set up with irssi, rtorrent, htop, ncmpcpp, mc and additional bash screens
2. Gnote
3. Firefox
4. Evolution

rest here
