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.

Fud, fud, fud... You can have any number of windows per app and it's natively supported. Taskbar does exist but it is in form of exposé instead of the legacy panel with buttons. The same goes with desktop list. The Gnome paradigm states you don't need empty desktops, and it's easy to agree with it. Why is the number of the desktop so important to you? For no reason, just because it was like that in the past.
