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?

You really think they will add *more* configuration options in later releases? You'll be lucky if the close button survives another point release.

Yeah, "who needs close button" arguments can easily pop up. After all "one can configure to close the window with some double middle click" or something. (The arguments to remove the maximize button were in the same fashion).
