I really like what they have done but the only thing I really dislike it the old gnome icons. I've used gnome and kde which i switch in between. But I really like kde icon themes because the old looking gnome icons make the system look really old. Hopefully, they will update those icons to something more sophisticated. If you look at Windows Media Center, Vista, Mac X, even KDE. All of these desktops have progressed while gnome hasn't. I mean in looks not performance because in that area I got to give to the gnome developer that they have done a great job and from whatching the video it seems that the desktop is very fast and responsive.

Chacun à son goût. One of the reasons I use GNOME rather than KDE is that I much prefer the icons and themes. The GNOME icons have a functional professional look while the KDE icons have the Fisher-Price kiddy toy look. But as I said Chacun à son goût.

Yeah - whoever modded this comment down is not able to enter into any discussion on desktop preferences. As I said "Chacun à son goût" - it's up to your own personal aesthetic preferences. Apparently to some people pointing that out is offensive.
