Gnome Ars has reviewed GNOME 3.0, and concludes: "The solid technical work that has been done under the hood really complements the new user experience features in GNOME 3.0. Despite some of the gaps in the feature set, I think that the environment and the new shell is a good starting point for building something even better. The GNOME contributors will be able to iterate on the design and move it forward in future updates."

Gnome 3 in Fedora 15

The best part of Gnome 3 in Fedora 15 is how easy it is to switch to XFCE 4.8 - especially if you set it up to start gnome services and set up a panel or two to resemble previous versions of gnome.

I tried some of the older versions of gnome shell in Fedora 14, etc. and I fime the releases layout from some of those to be a step backward. They yanked the recent lists and places from the Activities and left only the favorite apps making the whole concept almost useless.

The whole Expose style show all open apps by moving the mouse to the corner is nice - it's long been so,ething I set up on my Mac, but its just too slow when you"re flipping between a few windows. Panels and window selector buttons are way faster most of the time, unless you've really 'lost' something in the clutter.
