Happy anniversary GNOME: What’s your favourite model?

Today is the 22nd anniversary of the primary GNOME launch. To have a good time, we need to hear from you. What’s your favourite GNOME model? And what does your favourite model say about you? Are you change-averse or are you a pioneer of latest releases? Take our ballot!

We requested our writers to weigh in on the subject and we acquired some impassioned responses. Even although GNOME three was launched about eight years in the past, GNOME 2 continues to be the popular model amongst our writers. Many of our writers proclaimed that MATE is one of the best model. Others argued that MATE is certainly not a GNOME model whereas some advised that it might as nicely be thought of GNOME 2. 

“GNOME 2 or MATE Desktop.” —Ivan Bazulic 

“My favourite is at all times the newest model. Each launch has new goodies I can not wait to check out. These are those from three.32 which was launched with Fedora 30 – my favourite is the brand new icons, I like the vibrantly-colored redesign!” —Máirín Duffy 

“I’m a fan of GNOME 2, since I have been using Linux Mint + Mate desktop for a good number of years on my home computers.” —Eli Marcus 

“My favourite GNOME was 2, just because it had the choice to set the window borders to the theme “microgui” which I actually like.” —Germán Pulido

“GNOME 2.x, I can’t get used to GNOME 3 unfortunately, I think the GNOME 2 user experience was a lot better.” —Mario Torre

“My visually impaired colleagues like MATE, that means basically GNOME 2 too, because it works reliably for them and they don’t feel like second class citizens with it.” —Milan Zamazal 

“My favorite GNOME version is 2.32, it was simple, fast, and very usable. Still better than most modern iterations. Disclaimer: I develop and maintain the MATE Desktop, which is a fork of GNOME 2 from those days.” —Victor Kareh
