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.

I have used MATE myself on Arch Linux, and I must state that it is an exact clone of GNOME 2, and has no major caveats. However, many extra applications commonly used in GNOME 2 that have undergone transformations when ported to GNOME 3 look quite garish in MATE, and many graphical tools of GNOME are not present and resolving these issues would resolve the preliminary problems of the fork.
