Gnome Antonio Ospite explores Gnome 3 in fall-back mode and tries to make it look and behave more like Gnome 2.32 again. This summer Linus Torvalds made it to the news for complaining about the gnome-shell design; Gnome fall-back mode is the solution for those like Linus who can't - or better, do not want to - use gnome-shell just yet.

Ditched GNOME and XFCE

And settled for LXDE. My applications are full screen most of the time anyway. The only thing I'm hoping that will finally take off is E17 (after the new Duke came out, I was hopeful again).

Give Bodhi linux a try. They have worked wonders with E17 and gave it a fully integrated experience. The Bodhi team includes some E17 developers too so any feedback and suggestions gets straight to them. It's a live installable CD so nothing to lose really. Tried it myself and instantly fell in love with it, installed on my media PC and will be there permanently.
