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.

RE[4]: I've Switched

Why not? Most atom netbooks have Intel GMA graphics, which is perfectly capable of running gnome 3. Do you have something else?

Its an eeepc 1000HE, and when testing on a fedora live usb, its either 1) does work and I get a black screen 2) Boots into fallback mode 3) boots into gnome shell but its buggy and pretty much unusable. The uncertainty alone is enough to keep me from using it.
