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.

Gnome-Shell-Extensions...

I see lots of poeple don't like Gnome 3...

I was one of yours a week ago... I tried Fedora 15 at its beginnings, and the font were blurry, I did not had my shortcuts in the top panel, etc... So much things that made Gnome 3 unusable for me...

But a week ago, I tried again... First of all, the text was not blurry anymore! Great!
I began to be happier with the gnome-shell-extensions provided in the official fedora repo's...

And then I discovered https://extensions.gnome.org/
I browsed and tried a lot of extension during a complete afternoon... (you can add and start extension directly from Firefox!)

Now, I have an "Application Menu" (gnome2-like), a "Places Menu" (gnome2-like), a bottom-panel, always shown, whith my open-windows, a virtual-desktop switcher, a "back-to-desktop button". I can easily shut down the computer, the "panel-calendar" is synchronised with my google-cal, my shortcuts are shown in the top-panel, etc.

Thanks to gnome-tweak tools, I do have 3 buttons on my windows, and a conventional desktop...

So, with a little work, I have everything that made me happy on gnome 2.X...

Still, I do agree that it's not the perfect DE for a netbook, or server....
