Yes, it seems both Gnome and KDE want to become eye-candy, touchscreen shells to launch "apps" instead of a fully functional desktop for a graphical workstation. I lost faith in gnome when they rolled out gdm3. They removed a shit-ton of nice features and customizability to make a dumbed-down, microsoft-esque blandness for what seems to me no good reason.
