After yesterday sharing the general feedback submitted by over a thousand GNOME users (Part 1, Part 2) from the 2012 GNOME User Survey about their views on the popular Linux desktop environment, here's all of the responses to another one of the questions. The question came down to what features of GNOME are most important from your personal use and would not like them to go away.
Question 10 from the 2012 GNOME User Survey was "What features of GNOME do you rely on, and would not like them to go away?" All of the results from this question are included in this article. This was the last free-response question before getting to the structured survey results in full on Thursday.
The feedback is sorted in the order that the survey submissions were received. Like last year, the survey and its questions were developed independent of the GNOME Foundation and Phoronix by the GNOME community of users and developers. Phoronix simply participated as the host of the survey.

648: The Shell, simply, with all its extensions, its stylized windows changing and its search fonctionnalities
649: the categoriea in the overview
650: Simplicity. (Simplicity IS NOT EQUIVALENT TO obfuscation. Someone VERY STUPID has clearly confused the two)

676: extensions, particularly their access to the top bar. i reinstate the minimize button and use the Window List extension -- bringing back the old desktop paradigm for workspaces on which i have 3 or 4 overlapping windows. i also use system-monitor and cpu-temp indicators, as the work i do often grinds the system and having these indicators always available is a must for my work.

679: gnome-shell, but with faster rendering
680: Bottom bar with application windows
681: File Notes, Emblems and split pane view in Nautilus
682: I use gnome mostly for a group of core apps. The rest, shell/WM, other tie-ins and dependancies don't mean much, but do offer polish. It's hard to have both flexibility and polish, but removing features without exposing them as options to enable is making me consider moving away from gnome as the over-simplification is getting to the point where it's a deal breaker for me.
