So why have anything that doesn't add information? We could use
text-only toolbar, force off user's theme choice and use plain/stock
theme, remove choice of syntax highlighting colours, remove icons from
the symbols tree, hard-code the font family and size to the Geany
developers preference, etc...
In reality it doesn't matter what we think, or what the GNOME design
team thinks, such stuff is extremely subjective and personal and the
only apps that need to care about GNOME design manifesto are GNOME
P.S. As you can tell this subject is extremely controversial outside of
GNOME-land (or at least inside of Geany-land), please don't mistake
rants for anything personal against your own valid opinions :)
