Gnome and the growth of useless complexity

User Friendly Interfaces
“*Gnome seems to be developed by interface nazis, where consistently the excuse for not doing something is not “it’s too complicated to do,” but “it would confuse users”.” — Linus Torvalds
The Gnome developers are experts in providing a really user friendly experience!
Can you guess what are 'Sticky Keys'? And what is the difference between the "Cancel", "OK", and "Don't activate" buttons?
Gnome is Very Lightweight
Take a look at the Gnome System Monitor and you will see how lightweight.
In Gnome the hog monitor is the biggest hog of all!
