@koyuchan@koyu.space >Is GNOME really that bad?

As a user experience? No, not really. It's fine.

Most people hate GNOME because of historical reasons. Initially GNOME 3 was very lackluster when compared to the very beloved GNOME 2. Many people to this day still believe they should've never abandoned GNOME 2.

Also GNOME has turned their back against the GNU project. They say "open source" instead of "free software" nowadays and many of the initial people who signed the rms-open-letter are GNOME team members. To me that says enough about how toxic their team is.

@koyuchan wait hold on a second you have a blog?? I literally just found out about this.. anyways i might be late for this but congrats on getting the server fixed I was a little scared ngl :ablobcathappypaws:

@koyuchan In my humble opinion, people don't like Gnome because they try too hard to make it into a traditional desktop, completely missing the point of Gnome in the process.

I wrote a similar article myself. You can check it out here:
