Been there too.  Also been following the fedora forums.  Some raise
issues and also suggest solutions ... some go further and offer patches,
alternative designs, and fixes.  Some blow steam and throw threats when
they don't get a favourable response from the devs.  In the end, the
best route to something most people can identify with is to be part of
the process -- to be accommodating and understanding while pushing your
ideas for better UX.  Expecting the Devs to drop a concept that has been
evolving over 2years++ and do a 180degree turn is no way near that.

Tantrums?  That's not new.  Actually, the problems in people's
perception of Gnome3 is mostly social (the after effects of poor
communication ... i.e. from both sides.  This heat is totally
unnecessary.  People just need to tweak their tolerance levels a bit)

RH employees are part of the Gnome devs as well as contributors from
other big players.  Gnome3 is not an isolated project.  Please also note
that there is something like 'Disruptive Pseudo-Habits'.  Relax a bit :)
