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.

With Ubuntu 11.04 I switched back to the gnome 2.3 classic mode which works fine for me.
I tried gnome 3 but I hate the way the screw around with the desktop. Over-large title bars and more bars and some extra bars which results in a very small usable window.
Most screens are 16:9 nowadays and don't have that much precious vertical pixels left.
