Gnome Ars has reviewed GNOME 3.0, and concludes: "The solid technical work that has been done under the hood really complements the new user experience features in GNOME 3.0. Despite some of the gaps in the feature set, I think that the environment and the new shell is a good starting point for building something even better. The GNOME contributors will be able to iterate on the design and move it forward in future updates."

The lack of an option to make themes for Gnome 3 is very puzzling. Removing such customization functionality, which was successfully used in Gnome 2 will for sure offend many users. (For example why should everyone like that Adobe-like coloring with white on black?) That along with not allowing to customize many aspects of the UI layout. Switching to KDE now seems like a sensible idea.

Yeah but, if I need a third party piece of software to configure my desktop I might as well use Windows and Stardock! ;)

Because that is the most important thing for users of a desktop. Themes!
