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.

My setup

Debian Squeeze, a 2.6.38 Kernel from backports. Problem solved.
The only thing that's a small pain is getting an up-to-date browser.

But even that is quite easy to solve. Chrome sets up its own repository, Firefox can be installed by hand quite easily.

I will switch to Gnome 3 at some point, I tried it and I feel it's not that bad. 3.2 will solve many problems and 3.4 could be fine enough to switch over.

But for now, I am completely happy with my setup - and I am planning to stay on it for at least another year or so...
