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."

Nice try, but no, the launcher is not the same as the dock. This is how the launcher functions and looks like in Mac OS 9:

The control strip for control panel items, which is in your pic, does nothing like the OS X dock:

The Aqua interface has buttons for application icon, maximise, minimise and close located differently on the titlebar and the removal of window borders. So it is not just a reskin, the placement and behaviour has changed. For example, OS 9 did not support the use of right click menus on the title bar.
