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."

Is it really too late? Where have all the gnome 2 users gone? Every time I hear this I get a different answers.

Mate
Cinnamon
xfce
lxde
kde

With the exception of kde, I don't think any one of them individually could claim a majority of the old users of gnome 2. If Gnome 3 could just be changed with a click to look act and feel like gnome 2, I think it still has enough momentum to draw some users back.
