Or they switched to Plasma.
But hey---trying to calculate GNOME.org's next new foul-up beats boredom! (he said, with tongue-in-cheek)
I feel sad. I really, really like GNOME & GTK in general. But what they've done the past two iterations should be considered a sin-punishable-by-death.
And that being said, all of their surprises have been easily recoverable either by, A)changing themes (GTK 3.20) or, B)changing back from Wayland to Xorg (GTK 3.22).
BUT--these surprises that seemingly come issued by rota should not be surprises.
Face it, if you're gonna keep sneaking up behind and spooking me, eventually I'm gonna steer away from you--GNOME!
