A bit of kicking and screaming notwithstanding, I have, in general, made peace with GNOME 3 and gotten on with my work. I had figured that they had bottomed out in the "making things worse" phase and had moved firmly back into the "let's make it actually useful again" phase of their development cycle.

Then I read about their "new approach to GNOME application design" and realized that they don't seem to be done breaking things yet. It is really nice to concede (in an after-publication addition) that "If you want to be able to view more than one window at once you will still be able to do so," but it makes it fairly clear that, whoever those users are that they have in mind, they work very differently than I do. I'm discouraged.
