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."

I think this idea about changing the way everything looks appeals to just a tiny minority of nerds and powerusers... unfortunately for gnome, linux's userbase is entirely this minority

Maybe not so any more... Ubuntu & Unity doesn't seem to target them for example, and it might be the only non-Android distro with a nice growth (compare the shares of all Linux distros from http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/2012-10/SquidRepor... with http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/2011-10/SquidRepor... )
Oh yeah, and do we include Android or ChromeOS?
