comment How do you choose a distribution?
"no thought involve"? That's quite brutal and you seem to politicise a distribution. All distributions have communities behind them, and the size of the community is not necessarily an advantage if it is not well organised or does not listen to its users.

comment I want my Ubuntu 9.04/9.10 back, is there any current similar distro?
I experience the same dissatisfaction with Ubuntu 11.04 and up and have chosen to move to Xubuntu which is very similar functionally to Gnome 2.3 regarding the shell, but even more lightweight. It seems to be much more flexible and customisable too, which I think fits the Linux philosophy (at least as I interpret it).

comment Is it possible to control window management in Gnome Shell using D-Bus?
Ok, so how do you listen to newly mapped windows, as with a new pop-up for instance? And what API would you use? Is a xdotool good enough to build a shell or do you need to use python-xlib perse?
