Gnome Antonio Ospite explores Gnome 3 in fall-back mode and tries to make it look and behave more like Gnome 2.32 again. This summer Linus Torvalds made it to the news for complaining about the gnome-shell design; Gnome fall-back mode is the solution for those like Linus who can't - or better, do not want to - use gnome-shell just yet.

Dump Gnome

IIRC Linus moved to Xfce. Eric Raymond after several hours is also looking to move there. I'm moving away from Gnome to Xfce as I upgrade.

Gnome Shell is a crippled, half-working version that still requires a lot of manual or quirky programs to configure it to get anywhere near the earlier experience.
