Completely agree with this. It should be designed first and foremost for true desktop usage with the flexibility to be perfectly used in a touchscreen situation, not the other way round.
As a primarily KDE user it doesn't honestly affect me too much and KDE has been going great guns lately, but I'd still like to see the Gnome guys shift their views and way of doing things a bit for the good of everyone in the Linux community.
Besides, the Gnome DE clearly has a load of potential, I've thought that ever since even the first Gnome-Shell surfaced. The problem is I feel they're not gonna take full advantage of that. But we shall see.
