Personally, I've filed dozens of usability bugs against gnome and for
the most part they have been taken very seriously.  The developers (and
I am not a Gnome developer) seem to respond very positively to me
comments on usability.

My experience is that Gnome developers do not think they are "", and are
more than willing to address usability issues.

Food for thought:

Maybe this isn't a usability issue, but instead is a personal peeve
about how you think it should work.

Maybe it has to do with how you approach the situation.

Maybe it has to do with just accepting that other view points are also
valid.  At least you can complain - go try that with Windows were the
decision is made without your input and you simply can't complain to the
