Editorial Do you depend on your computer for your living? If so, I'm sure you've thought long and hard about which hardware and software to use. I'd like to explain why I use generic "white boxes" running open source software. These give me a platform I rely on for 100% availability. They also provide a low-cost solution with excellent security and privacy.

They're offering it as an option for GNOME 3.8 -- they're dropping fallback mode, which is kinda sad (because it tends to work better inside a virtual machine or on older hardware) but they're bolting a traditionally-shaped desktop into the composited environment for those who want it:
