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."

How do you maintain those 4 consistent desktops? The dynamic desktops are one of the things I found intolerable about gnome3. I would put certain things on certain desktops and if I accidentally closed the last one of them, gnome would delete the desktop and I'd have to rearrange everything again.

That, and their crazy dual screen handling where one screen changes per desktop but the other is static, just didn't work with what I, as a developer, need daily out of a desktop.
