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."

Not only it is too little, too late, but all extensions I've seen so far, to which GNOME3 supporters point out as would be GNOME2 feature replacements, usually provide very poor experience comparing to their GNOME2 counterpart.
Not to say that using more than 2 extensions which put some info on the panel creates complete uncontrollable mess. Yes, ordering of applets in GNOME2 could be messed up at times, but, at least, it could be easily fixed. GNOME3 "applets" simply create mess which can not be fixed unless user is willing to dive into JS coding.
