It sure does.
Right now i'm running OSX, since the major DE's (and the change to a new, unfinished one for the distro people love to hate) made desktop linux unbearable for a while there. Until now, i didn't see any light on the horizon (well, perhaps unity in ubuntu 12.04 will get it "right" for once), but with fedora 16, i might actually go for a linux desktop again.
I'm actually running the gnome-shell fallback mode, and it's quite nice, aside from a few cosmetic glitches. Well, that and the fedora theme defaults blows. But i guess i'm shallow, coming from a mostly pixel perfect OSX desktop. Fixed that with some gnome-look.org love. ;)
The one thing i miss the most though, is the "smart" window positioning mode from compiz, where windows will be placed in the most unused areas of the desktop, even if they overlap other window somewhat. Mutter/Metacity does this thing where is places window beside each other if there's room, but if there isn't (because window would overlap slightly), it cascades window right over each other. So, i wish mutter was more configurable, but that goes for the whole desktop in general i suppose.
