->The truth is that many GNOME3 applications that ahve been ported to Gtk3 have lost compatibility with Gtk2. They have been modified to be 'easy to use' and to have a 'cleaner interface', but also oversimplifying them. This severely limits the intermediate and advanced users, and also users accustomed to GNOME2 and the applications that go along with GNOME2. If all applications were ported from GNOME3, then this form would be meaningless as a fork of GNOME2. But I expect everyone has a choice over which applications to install. This is a complicated issue, and it leads nowhere.+>The truth is that many GNOME3 applications that have been ported to Gtk3 have lost compatibility with Gtk2.
