Gnome Not even GNOME itself could ignore the GNOME 3 criticism for much longer. "As part of the planning for the DropOrFixFallbackMode feature, we've decided that we will compile a list of supported gnome-shell extensions. This will be a small list, focused on just bringing back some central 'classic' UX elements: classic alt tab, task bar, min/max buttons, main menu. To ensure that these extensions keep working, we will release them as a tarball, just like any other module."

And it's reasoning such as yours, that I believe Gnome3 seems to be such a failure. Of course the developers do the hard labor in an open source project. But without the userbase, there wouldn't be donations, nor distros and corporations that would invest in paid developers to keep the project going.
