Fedora 15 is a lot like Windows OS's.. irritating, offensive, difficult to use with ease, nauseating to try...

It wasn't 80x50 which let me look at more lines of code at once. :)

Then don't click through to it: start typing it's name and let it pop up
as the list narrows down the app selection. I use that to quickly jump
to what I want.
And if I use it enough then I add it to the favorites.

You can. Just turn on the "Having file manager handle the desktop".

I think that everybody who wants to have Gnome2 need to get together and
do things the Open Source Way:
1. fork the Gnome2 codebase (maybe give it a new project name)
2. keep it updated with fixes, new features, etc.
3. make it available to others who want to keep using that paradigm
Then everybody can be happy and have what they want. :)
