    Why is GNOME the default DE for so many distros? Literally every single part of it is broken. It's not that that there are better alternatives, it's that almost EVERY alternative is better.

      Because it's stable and polished.

      Because it's was the only freesoftware DE. KDE was proprietary. So basically it has stayed the standard. Gnome is also more stable than any DE. and it is more up to date and heavily maintained.

        KDE was proprietary in the fucking 90s. Why are developers using a situation from 30 years ago to justify their current choices?

          nigga, linux tards use 50 years old proprietary mainframe research OS (unix) to justify the course of their actions nowadays

      People are more afraid of getting sued by Microsoft than they are concerned about quality. Same reason font rendering only became good on Linux in recent years.

    it's over for gn0mecels

    GNOME's file picker issue is 18 years old. When Windows 98 was released with thumbnails in the file picker, Windows was 13 years old (Windows 1.0 was released in 1985)

    In other words, Microsoft engineers added a file picker with thumbnails in 13 years, ~25 years ago, while GNOME trannies have made 0 (ZERO) progress in the last 18 (24) years.

    GNOME was released in 1999, before some of you were even born, and Windows had thumbnails in the file picker a whole year earlier.

    1 day.

    Of course, I've only ever made 1 program and I guess it only has three features -- the installer, program (which does one thing), and the uninstaller.

        Show one of these patches that is fully working and completed

        >Unfinished hack rotting in the AUR
        Not fully working and completed, try again. It needs to be in the form of a completed merge request to the gtk git.

        Why are you pretending that this is some Herculean task that no one is capable of doing? Several other toolkits/DEs have this feature, so clearly it isn't impossible to implement.

          Then why don't you copy the code from those toolkits?

          like I said I don't use gnome

          Then why do you care?

              By your standard none of GNOME is "fully working and completed".

    OH MY FUCKING GOD IT TAKES FIVE FUCKING SECONDS TO SWITCH TO THE QT/PLASMA FILE PICKER YOU NOOBS

    First off, I am a GNOME developer speaking anonymously. I will not prove this. I will not give you a hint. But this is why we don't give a shit.

    SECOND OFF
    Listen, you dont need grid thumbnails, you need to stop being a retard. The vast majority of users would like thumbnails, but they do not need them, and they do not need the release delays and bugs from trying to redo the file picker like this creating entirely new widgets and everything. What you get is the name, the mtime, the size, and type, all of which you can sort by, and SMALL thumbnails that are perfectly usable for most people looking through a photo collection. Update your screenshot homosexual, we have thumbnails in list view. SO HOW DO I TELL WHICH PICTURE IS WHICH, MAYHAPS? You organize your photos. You give them names. You give the folders names. And now you can find pretty much any file way faster than you would scrolling through a grid of 10000 thumbnails named things like 123843042341-0.jpg in ~/Shitposts. Most of the time I know where something is based on the modification time and size alone. For large collections like personal photographs they are all in folders and the filenames are timestamps. And, I, AND MOST PEOPLE, do not go through looking for just one in a file picker, because I, AND MOST PEOPLE, upload whole batches to social media at once instead of picking them one at a time for FUCKING LULZ.

    In other words, this does not affect most users, it affects FOUR-CHAN USERS not GNOME USERS so it is not a GNOME PRIORITY. 99% of people do not notice or care. If you think it is that great patch it yourself but the only people clamoring for this are on reddit (LULZ users off the clock) and LULZ (reddit users waiting out bans).

    One thing that puzzles me about this is you'd think if gnome are so good at stealing ideas from osx, why on earth did they completely skimo out on the file picker with barely any customization, shit thumbnails, and not even any kind of quicklook functionality?
