I hate to admit it, but I have lost all interest in Gnome 3.x.  Every time the dev's update it, it breaks existing themes.  Even Half-Left, who is pretty much Gnome 3.x's best themes ever, has said that the dev's dont care about theme custom themes, they break the skin format with every new release.

 

Imagine you worked hard for a month on a theme, it works great, new release, have to re-make the theme, over and over and over...  

 

Cant decide if i want to move on toe KDE or Cinnamon or MATE, or even XFCE.  But not Gnome 3.x

Why is this thread here instead of in the Linux Distros forum? :o
