I can't believe I really read the whole comic.. gosh... what a waste :/
but I acknowledge that some folks might like it, praise it, kneel in
front of it and see it as the definitive answer to art in general and
how the world does tick. Me, not so much.
I really don't know if I should go any deeper there... as I don't want
to get rude after trying to be polite such a long time. :)

Now I see how that works for the gnome folks! *lol* Really, if the

Please read http://theoatmeal.com/comics/making_things (especially the
last part about comments). It completely applies here.
Just one thing, no, that comic does not explain how a fruitful
relationship between $PROJECT and $COMMUNITY works. If it stands for how
Gnome works... oh hell yeah, that might explain a few things.
I suggest you make an appointment with your optician or use a bigger
screen / look closer to the screen. As I see on screen #1 five areas and
on screen #2 eight areas. I would get along with less on both but just
left, middle, right is way to little. If you look close enough you might
even realize why I "needed" (read: wanted) that many areas.
Oh and just on the fun side, your “real user need”:
So here we have 2 panels on a Xinerama setup. On each screen, you have
grossly 3 areas of applets: left, middle, right. Exactly the kind of
setup gnome-panel 3 was made for.
Please, look closer *sigh* and try to think harder why with only 3 fixed
areas it is impossible to avoid wobbling applets in all cases. You used
gnome2 in the past AND gnome3 now, it can't be that hard and I really
start to think you're joking.
And I need that to be able to make groupings of applets, to make sure
they don't wobble around and *always* *stay* *where* *they* *are* (which
does break when resizing screen, which is a bug and not to be answered
by removing that feature, at least if one has the broad variety of users
The 3 areas of applets precisely answer that need: your applets won’t
wobble around, they will always stay where they are. You can have
several times the same applets at different positions, too.
What you are telling me is that GNOME 2.x / MATE does not answer your
user needs, while gnome-panel 3 does.
Thanks, for the entertainment, MATE :)
