Gnome "Gnome Shell 2.91.90 was released yesterday getting some fine adjustments according to the release announcement: 'This release just about concludes user interface changes anticipated before GNOME 3.0. The only significant change we expect after this release is to add a native network indicator based on NetworkManager 0.9.' Gnome Shell 2.91.90 brings new automatic workspaces, removed minimize and maximize buttons from window titlebars, a PolicyKit authentication agent and more."

Gnome Shell has come a LONG WAY!

I was concerned with some of the earlier screen shots, looked kind of fugly 6 mos ago, but this is nice. Clean, simple, functional. Finally looks like has drag and drop menu/dock. Window docking to left/right of screen could be useful.

This looks really impressive, lot nicer than Ubuntu's Unity.

Oh Oh, here comes the flames: I said nice things about Gnome and not bowing at the QT alter.

Actually it is you who brings another topic to the table. Judging from your other posts where you mention Qt [1] it looks like you are trying to start a flame war. Again.

[1] Yeah it is _Qt_ not QT. QT could be taken as QuickTime. ;)

Troll detected.

I dare you to attempt to defend GNOME's UI choices on their merits. I will shred your arguments in to fine spaghetti and then feed it to you, one revolting bite at a time, while I enumerate GNOME's failings memorably by punctuating each criticism with an evaluation of your intelligence calculated to be unflattering to you and amusing to the audience.
