Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

You should be careful of following person. A lot of people who would love Gnome 3 then realize that Linus doesn't like it then they dislike it.
Linus is a Kernel Developer and leads the Kernel Development effort, he seems like a nice guy and really smart too... However his views on everything doesn't make him right, or should change your opinion.

well, i for one don't need to follow anyone. i was pretty much hooked on shell... until i saw this

after reading this plan i simply stopped following gs and my adoption of it. making phone from my desktop is way too unacceptable for me.

now, i'll simply wait 6 more months and if this change comes into default... i'm switching elsewhere
