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."

It seems a number of people are commenting solely based on their misunderstanding of some text rather than any actual user experience. GNOME Shell allows users to run multiple times the same app. It is just not the default action when you click on a icon. Right click provides a option "New Window" which does the task just fine.

Also Maximize and Minimize are still options and can be enabled via dconf. Just not the default.

Is there a window list in a taskbar or something similar?

There is a Dash which is sort of similar to the OS X Dock. You can see screenshots or videos online.

Everybody likes to poke around in a registry because it's so much fun. User friendly too.

User friendly or not, it is still a option and users here seemed to have assumed it is not. My point still stands.
