Yeah, I have no immediate issue with tabs and I don't mind it for my
webbrowser (in fact I like it that way) but when I am using notepad like
programs I like my tasks to be separate.
The fact that opening a new instance then activates the existing window
and adds a tab there is really annoying. Generally speaking if I want a
tab I will be able to create one. The amount of time that I actually
open existing files with a notepad application is minimal. Usually I do
it to write or copy something new.
It seems there is much more discussion on the forums that were also
But I'm not much of a Reddit/Slashdot user ;-).
Anyway, good luck with it.
Some suggest using Gnome-only apps but I think that is a downfall. For
some it is important that apps all behave the same way (e.g. with
theming and accessibility) but for the majority I would expect that
using well-known best-in-slot applications that are also used in e.g.
Windows is the preferred thing to do. For example that means VLC over
MPV. Nobody seems to have a good choice for music player, some saying
that not a good one exists. I have seen one person recommend Clementine;
it is really for me a reason to boot Linux, because I don't have
anything useful on Windows anymore.
Amarok is for me unusable; strange then that its fork is so nice.
There is actually a bunch of people recommending Clementine. But anyway.
