Gnome I have to admit I've been struggling with this one for a while, most importantly because I haven't used GNOME 3 yet; I'm setting up my own little company right now, so time's a little short. As such, all I can do here is cover the arguments given - which, in my book, have both their strong as well as their weak points. Yes, GNOME 3 will not have buttons for minimising or maximising windows.

This was my approach. I gave Gnome 3 a few days when I loaded up Fedora 15 Alpha TC2 and quickly decided that this will not work - I even tried with Avant Window Navigator to give it a bit more of a Mac feel; still not good. Gnome 3 is unrefined, uncustomizable, and all around rough around the edges.

I quickly loaded up XFCE 4.8, clicked the option to start the gnome services, got nm-applet running in the notification area, and didn't look back.
