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.

I've been using xfce since 11.04 came out. Xubuntu is worlds better than Ubuntu right now.

From everything I've seen, the Gnome devs are self-righteous, arrogant pricks who think they know better than their customers what the customers want, without even bothering to ask. And by customers, I mean users, because that's what they really are.

I hope xfce becomes the big DE over the next year, and they are smart enough to not permit ANY KDE4 or GnomeShell devs to even touch xfce, much less submit code to it.
