Disagree. His statement is very clear. I guess everyone who has
followed the development of G3 is well aware of the - let's say -
disagreements that have poped up continuously.

If you are asking for another flame war, you can have it.

So *your* personal opinion is any better?

So what do you want to say? I guess a simple "google-that-for-me"
should show you thousands of flame-war like threads, blogs, whatever
discussing the (de-)merits of G3.

Now, tell me something similar from XFCE?

And finally, let me know he is discussing *personal* opinions?
