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 3 is fine. It's the shell that's annoying as hell to use (unless you're just dicking around on the internet - nothing wrong with that mind you). All you need is the frippery & the hide accessibility icon extensions enabled and it's fine:

There's no real need to go back into fallback mode unless, of course, you have a old computer but if that's case you should probably just install lxde or openbox anyway...
