If GNOME is so criticized for heading in a wrong direction, why do Linux vendors and main distributions (with large user base) still pick it as the default desktop for their users?

  • cinnamon

    A Linux desktop featuring a traditional layout, built from modern technology and introducing brand new innovative features.

    the inability to swap out the window manager keeps me on mate, unfortunately. i'm keeping an interested eye on regolith; if it ever gets smoothly installable on non-ubuntu distros i will give it a try.

  • ulubis

    A Wayland compositor written in Common Lisp

    This is the one I had bookmarked: https://github.com/malcolmstill/ulubis

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • termite

    Termite is obsoleted by Alacritty. Termite was a keyboard-centric VTE-based terminal, aimed at use within a window manager with tiling and/or tabbing support.

    The words from the dev of the now defunct Termite further corroborate.
