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.

Gnome Shell rocks

I switched to Gnome 3 and the Shell after three frustrating years of unfixed bugs and constant regressions with KDE.

Gnome Shell is to me the ultimate paradigm, probably the best there could be. The notification area is not that great, though. Then again, it's more like a legacy compatibility thingy than something that truly belongs to a Gnome 3 desktop.
