Gnome 40 release video. I'm really looking forward to giving it a shot. Sorry about the YouTube link.

@mike I'm always impressed with the looks of GNOME, but when I try it, I'm not equally impressed.

I'm all for the 'single monitor hyper focus one thing at the time' philosophy, but GNOME takes that way to far by making it annoying to even run more than one thing at the time. :/

@hund @mike I think GNOME 40 is particularly well suited for laptops. Using the touch pad / touch screen gestures is quite nice.

@robby @mike That's what most users keeps telling me, while all developers of GNOME say it's made for advanced keyboard users. I'm rather confused. :P


@hund @robby @mike but even if you are using a laptop... keyboard typing will be always faster than a touchpad gesture xD that's why i3wm tries to help users to do anything via keyboard, you only need mouse for browsing web or few more stuff. And i3wm will use less resource and have more battery to keep using while traveling than a full gnome desktop. I will never understand why people uses gnome or others DE if isn't because they don't know about WM world.
