Time for patches
Not happy with GNOME Shell, not happy with Unity, not happy with alternatives. Seems it is time for starting the editor again and cooking patches. Merging the good ideas from GNOME Shell and Unity. Ripping out the crap. Well, making it possible to hide: Some people believe in it - fine.
Still wondering which of the two I'll work with.
Really sucks that people allowed this split to happen. Both teams have good ideas. Both teams have bad ideas. Both teams are motivated. Good leaders would not have permitted this split to happen.
Well, back to fetching source code, reading documentation, understanding what's going on.
Big fears wether I am able to get my code upstream. Both teams appear narrow-minded from outside. Guess I'll need a (good) plan.
Not ready to give up yet. Want a modern free desktop, which suites my needs. Not a corset.
Wondering where to steal the massive amount of time needed.
