The gnome developers seem to forget one thing, the quintessence for a desktop environment is for it to be transparent to the users rather than be a thick layer of goo, obstructing the user in his/her activities.


Gnome shell actually obstructs the users activities than gnome2 shell, in the sense that you'll be spending less time finding the correct window.

The best way to verify this is to actually try it out.

So in order to achieve usability you need to have a bazillion of windows? What about people who only have a couple programs open most of the time? Gnome people spend too much time thinking about entreprisey desktops it seems, and little thinking about home users. But then it shows: Gnome is developed by Red Hat, Novell, Canonical... Not exactly the paradigm of home desktop providers.
