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."

Fair comment, what I meant was this functionality should be built into Gnome in the first place. Instead you have to find out there's a little known tool available for tweaking it! How many users are going to get peeved off when they find that their DE can't be configured as expected?

Oh no, the world is ending... a user can't change their desktop colour scheme.

Give them a break... it's version 3.0, first release of a new series, major changes all around, and some stuff that couldn't make it in on time. KDE 4.0 was no different, released to get people to start using it, even if some stuff wasn't finished yet. "Release early, release often", right?

Reminds me of the TweakUI tool from the Windows Powertools days. So much extra tweaking power to make Windows useful ... but you had to know to go looking for the tool.

If the GnomeTweak tool has a menu entry (or Applications icon), then it's ahead of the game. If not ... perhaps it should be added?

Very few, considering most users won't be using vanilla Gnome 3. The distros will be modifying it as they integrate it into their offerings and many if not most will be adding functionality back into their default setups as they see fit.
