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."

Gnome Shell

I use Gnome Shell at work and think it's great, but it all depends how you use it.

In general I don't have any overlapping windows, and a consistent first 4 workspaces:
1. IDE
2. 2x Terminals (for compiling, git etc), File manager & Test Editor, tiled to use 1/4 of the screen each
3. Web browser
4. Email client
Temporary windows on new workspaces as needed

Fits my workflow very well and very few distractions I never have to go clicking through a tiny taskbar looking for the window I want ;)
