      And for all the fancy animation and HiDPI support and whatever else, they stuck with the old, cheesy GNOME icon set.

        Then when you actually get logged in, there's just a naked task bar. Mouse over to the left, look for a Unity-style dock? Nope. Mouse right? Uh-uh. OOOOH, I hit the super key to reveal all the things!

          Case in point: The login screen. You have to click and drag up on the lock screen, but it's dang hard to figure that out. From the lock screen, if you click the power icon, there's not actually a way to poweroff or reboot the machine.

            GNOME3, though... I've mostly rolled my eyes at the fuss over it, but they really seem to have gone out of their way to hurt the discoverability of normal operations.

              Fedora has made installing to a multi-disk array a point-and-click affair, which is nice. It does all the LVM magic behind the curtain, leaving you with a yooge ext4 filesystem.

                    GNOME Boxes is a really nice GUI for virtual machine management. Except they haven't provided a way to pass Ctrl-Alt-Delete to a Windows guest. The bugzilla conversation seems to have stalled with "I don't know why we didn't put that in there."

                          Just had an alarm guy ask me to punch a hole through our firewall to their device at a mutual customer's location so that it's open to the world. I was remarkably restrained in how I told him no.

                                    I still prefer using Linux on the desktop to anything else, but one of these days I swear I'm going to lose it. #deathByPapercut
