On switching to KDE/Xfce

“So call me old fashioned, but I don’t like the direction being
taken by modern “User Experience” design. To me, GNOME Shell
provides an experience that I am supposed to love, but it doesn’t
empower me to make changes to that experience according to my
existing use practices when that given experience inevitably falls
short of my own personal preference. Perhaps I’m just “wrong” and I
should be doing everything differently, but I suspect like some
other users, my reaction to this enforced pattern of use (a trend
that has been a long time coming with GNOME) is to be driven away
from GNOME as a desktop environment of choice, and toward something
else. What “something else” is a very good question.”
