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 love it.

As someone else mentioned desktop management of the desktop itself is a little messy, also I didn't like its default volume mixer so I am using the volume mixer from GNOME 2.x. But XFCE is fast, clean looking overall, and reasonably configurable.

Olivier should probably thank GNOME and Unity for the sudden increase in interest over XFCE.

I should thank Olivier Fourdran because I find that I have been more productive under XFCE currently than I have ever been under any other desktop. There are probably a number of reasons that can filter into that statement but how nice XFCE itself is should not be discounted.

In case anyone is curious, I am currently running XFCE under LMDE-32 bit.
