This is just weird. Why would GNOME expose a button to regular user
that reads "hey, press me, please use this feature, but it's not going
to work, and nobody is going to help you with it or fix bugs,
kthxbye". That's just awful UI.
you are right. So GNOME should change to old bevavior.
Quite frankly, this is quite ridiculous. GNOME is not the only user
this, we shouldn't expose crap that doesn't work in the UI, regardless
what the UI looks like. GNOME has every right to assume that what the
underlying layers advertise works. And when it doesn't then the
underlying layers should stop advertising this.
Iirc on the kernel side it has been for nearly two decades or so like it
is now. Every other "user" did learn how to deal with it.
Why the sudden drama? Because GNOME decided to change something without
considering to ask the user?
