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.

Not just the UI paradigm, I think, but also some technical decisions that just do not make sense on a desktop computer running Linux, such as mandatory GPU compositing, hiding the power off button (though thankfully it seems they have brought it back recently), huge icons in a mouse-driven interface, half-assed window management facilities...

It seems that when designing Gnome 3, the Gnome team took much care into producing a high-quality interface for tablet computers, without much consideration to desktop user experience. What they apparently forgot, however, was that almost no one uses Linux on a tablet.
