      A lot of people picked certain distributions because they like the themes.
      That's kind of the point of distributions: delegate the tinkering to distro maintainers.

    since you asked the question that way, it means that gnome designers are the same "artists" currently seething about "AI art"

      the first instance of the word "app" was used in 1985 and became commonly used in 1989.
      so unless you're literally a boomer/genx then shut that 2nd butthole of yours that you call a mouth.

        The word used was "application", app is a bastardized nu-speak invented by manbabies with attention span not long enough to type a long word like that

        honestly incredible how good it looks with how hard amerisharts actively sabotaged any chances of north korea getting any kind of internet peering (good luck with that with only a /24), software, hardware, etc
        worst part is amerisharts then screaming "waaa they have spyware built in big firewall all government controlled cant google democracy!!!" when in reality theyd love to be able to google democracy (they know their people arent going to randomly change their opinion once they see how fricked up america is) but america isnt allowing it

        I heard most of the services on their national intranet don't do authentication, just identification.
        They can get away with that since the only way to get online is in a government office with an armed guard standing next to you.

        I mean, "just shoot them" is certainly *a* way to deal with info sec.

        I think the only way you're going to get a consistent and stable linux desktop is if the same group makes the window manager, desktop environment and UI toolkit. Also, no LGBTQ+ members allowed.

    Who even knows, gnomes developers are deranged. The contributors have some of the worst possible takes in the discussion pages, they love to ignore existing problems and accuse people who raise issues of not "understanding" their DE. A funny one was an issue was raised with a misbehaving icon in the adwaita theme, and rather than fix the bug they said the person who raised the issue "misinterpreted" the problem, whatever the frick that means. I saw a contributor call KDE "unsecure" and call their codebase garbage, solely because KDE implemented a DRM leasing method for Wayland. Gnome didn't want to implement this fix because, for some inexplicable reason, gnomes developers became fixated on using an asinine portal method which they've only just now realized was stupid, fricking two years later. Now they're implementing effectively the same fix KDE did, except they're trying to do it from scratch. Why? Who knows. Then again these are the same dumbasses that decided to not include title bars on applications running in Wayland for literally no discernable reason, sniffing glue is a major pass time for them I imagine.

    From what I can gather their issue was with distros shipping "non standard" icon packs which meant if they had any problems it was gnome getting bug requests... which, in a way I can understand but at the same time, it's like... buddy, if you don't like devs messing with your software you're really in the wrong place lol

      adwaita is the non standard icon pack
      See: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/adwaita-icon-theme/-/issues/288
      The irony is, Distros may now be *forced* to ship with a "non standard" icon-pack, because the third party icon pack adheres to XDG/Free desktop standards, while GNOME does not lol.

        Are there any gitlab threads where there is a slight disagreement where the Gnome devs manage to not be total abrasive dickheads? They are seriously in need of some people skills.

    Just one week ago there was drama because GNOME's adwaita theme doesn't follow FreeDesktop's specs, causing apps that expect a "default icon theme" to break.

    https://cullmann.io/posts/kde-applications-and-icons/
    https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/adwaita-icon-theme/-/issues/288

    Not to mention that GNOME's push for libadwaita is making their apps impossible to theme, to the point of making Linux Mint's devs consider forking more core GNOME apps, create a new library and even fork GTK3 or move to Qt:

      So that's why all my icons suddenly broke. Classic Gnome.

      After actually exploring the issue further, raging kde autist discovered that his shit is broken on every linux DE but kde. You even posted the fricking link, are you autistic.
      https://cullmann.io/posts/kde-applications-and-icons/
      Now they're going to use their theme/icons by default on other DE's like gnome does.

      So that's why all my icons suddenly broke. Classic Gnome.

      >suddenly
      It was like that for at least 2 years.

      qt is slowly taking over. gnu and gnome keep pushing the old invalid arguments against it. they are digging their own grave by making gtk so hostile. People shoulda known better than to use a library literally called "GTK (GIMP (GNU (GNU is Not Unix) Image Manipulation Program) Tool Kit"

        Yeah, I highly prefer the GTK2 look and theming, but as GNOME systematically destroys all that, I'm just switching to Qt alternatives or something without a toolkit at all (Zathura)

      I really hope Mint moves to Qt. I don't see a future for GTK outside of being GNOME's pet project
      youo can get very, very far with PyQt these days, and not have to tuch C++ at all

    They meant we should kick the Yids out of the tech sector and rename GNOME to JNOME so it honors Jesus instead of the antichrist.

      Gnome was never relevant since day one.

      Everyone was still heavily relying on KDE during the late 90s and the very early 2000s to even bother with it.
