"For people who fire up 3 applications and like to see 3D effects, it might be cool. It may even compete with Google Chrome OS. But... let's be serious."

I'm uncomfortable when people make that kind of assumption. It's a little insulting for the people who are able to use (and even like) Gnome-Shell for real, complex, work. I'm currently doing my thesis (doctoral degree) under Fedora 16, and I have no problem dealing with lots of windows, on multiple workspaces.

I can understand why some people (or even most people) doesn't like Gnome-Shell, and your comment was truly interesting to read, but it's perfectly possible for someone else do adapt to Gnome-Shell, and be very productive with it.


Your thesis is complex, but editing it with latex or any other software is not complex. The real complex tasks are entertainment tasks. For serious tasks, the stupidity and inefficiency of Gnome shell can be ignored since people will concentrate more on tasks. In your case, I would assume your concentration would be on the contents of your thesis. For entertainment, that is a different story.
