GNOME has a dock and that top bar thing. You'd need an extension to get CPU usage, but otherwise all of those are provided.

Modes are almost always a good thing. Modes make operation simpler and faster. They concentrate concepts into logical units and reduce the distance to access them. You don't have to remember what mode you're in because the UI should indicate what mode you're in.

Now, maybe GNOME doesn't do a good job of indicating mode, I don't know. I don't use it, but I don't remember having any issues.

So no, those aren't objective issues. It really does sound like you just can't adapt.
