That's more or less been my relationship with GNOME 2 these past few years. I understand its ins and outs reasonably well by now, and know what to do to turn it into something that doesn't get in my way. One of the main reasons I'm still on 10.04 is that I didn't feel like figuring out how to deal with a different DE's suckiness.
It's kind of like the difference between office suites -- in terms of usability, OpenOffice/LibreOffice aren't really any better or worse than MS Office; they just suck differently.
