Gnome "GNOME 3.4 introduces a range of new features. A new document search facility allows quick access to content stored both on your device and online. Smooth scrolling means that moving through content is slick and graceful. New application menus, which are located on the top bar, provide a useful way to access application options and actions." And a lot more.

Member since:

All the Gnome 2.x using people I know, me included, have jumped ship: sadly some of them have gone back to Windows, nobody is using Unity either.

So, as far my little anecdotical evidence goes, it's more 100% than 80% or 90%. Of course it is nearly impossible to have more precise figures, and in all fairness there are people who seem very happy with Gnome Shell / Unity. But I remember the Gnome 1.x > 2.x controversy and this looks much more serious both in numbers and wrt the issues at stake (it's not simply a matter of lost features and/or regressions, it's the new UI paradigm that has driven many people away).

Today I still follow Gnome development as that's the foundation of Cinnamon, but that's it.
