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 3 is perfect

My considerations of a Gnome Shell notebook user:

1. Gnome Shell was stable and fast since 3.0, still on 3.4;
2. Dynamic desktops is a great idea and it works;
3. Hiding the tray and controlling the alerts on a centralized manner really works for productivity;
4. The second monitor works really well for me. I only develop on virtual machines (why people still write code on a host is something someone still has to explain to me). When presenting, I just put my vbox on the other monitor and still can use all the power on my screen without showing the audience my inner work.

Today I find Gnome to be perfect for notebooks and KDE 4.9 for desktops with a big screen (or even more than one).
