Gnome The day is finally here, the day that the GNOME team releases GNOME 3.0, the first major revision of the GNOME project since 2002. Little of GNOME 2.x is left in GNOME 3.0, and as such, you could call it GNOME's KDE4. We're living in fortunate times, what, with two wildly divergent open source desktops.

It is not the matter of getting used to a new way of doing things. Gnome-shell has something physically missing. Say when you have a lot of windows open, how would you navigate among them? Either use alt-tab or go to Activities first. Either way involves extra steps.
What sucks more is that the global picture of opened windows will not present itself unless you do extra clicking. Why does it bug me? because I want to check the windows list with my eyes ONLY, not my eyes and my hands together.
