This was some concern so I switched to xfce removed as much gnome as I
could and reinstalled. Considering that xfce is new to me the experience
was not too unfriendly.

Then one day I find all the windows stuck in the left corner with the
buttons inaccessible.

So now I am back to gnome(3). The new default is completely unusable so I
tried 'classic.' It at least works except that half the things that used
to work have stopped working.

I often hear reduced functionality touted as a feature. iOS users like
to claim that not having full multitasking is actually a plus, much as
Mac users did before OS X gave it to them, and Microsoft users did
before Windows NT. I tend to view praise for the absence of a popular
feature as sitting somewhere between the sunk-cost fallacy and Stockholm
syndrome.

Personally, I dumped both GNOME and Unity last year and am pretty happy
with Xfce for coding and making music. It stays out of my way, uses less
than 5% of my screen real estate. (It's also much, much more friendly t=

being controlled remotely, as I'm doing right now, than the other two.)=

The Ubuntu Studio guys have come to the same conclusion in the last
year, it seems. I think it's a good one.

But if I ever have a need to use a tablet with something other than
Android, sure, I'll look at them again. And I love the search-focused U=
