Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

I'd just like to point a few things. Gnome-Shell is not the same as Gnome3. The next version of Unity will be based on Gnome3 libraries. Second, Ubuntu 11.10 will have Unity2d as the fallback. Gnome-Shell will never be on ubuntu unless you install it yourself.
