Gnome constantly seems to tell me that the way I want the DE to work is "wrong" and eventually renegs on my complaints (e.g. vertical workspaces, forcing a user to slide up the lock screen, etc.). So I was pretty happy to see the change for workspaces to be horizontal instead of vertical.

That said - why couldn't they just go the full way and support a grid? Ironically it's the one way in which Mac offers a better option for desktop management.

@sotneStatue Whoops! Maybe it was just how my hardware worked? For a long, long time I had to click and drag the lock screen up before logging in after a suspend. Go figure!

@funnylookinhat is it working for you now? I always just start typing my password or press enter and it prompts for the password


@sotneStatue This was a thing they fixed a year or two ago.
