Gnome "Gnome 3 has received a lot of disapproval of late, from the Gnome foundation being charged with not taking care of its users, or losing mindshare, to Gnome 3 itself being an unusable mess. I've been using Gnome 3 myself for a few months to sort the truth from the fiction, and to try and understand just how the Gnome foundation expects their newest shell to be used. I will end with some thoughts on how Gnome 3 can be improved. The review will require a fairly lengthy preface, however."

That's no evolution. That's the past.

The real evolution of the “document oriented” desktop is the "object-oriented" document desktop. Something very hard to achieve due the "hyper-high" level of software integration needed. Even Apple (OpenDock) and Microsoft (OLE) failed in this task. "application oriented" desktop is just a simplistic way of doing things only usefull for cellulars and 7" tablets but is just an insult for a user trying to make some work in a desktop computer. Even being the Apple way (Sandboxing) and Microsoft way (Metro). It's shame that Gnome 3 do the same thing against the user.
After Gnome 2 Xface is "The Desktop". Gnome no more.
