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.

* If you hit ALT while selecting 'Suspend' you'll get the 'Power Off' option instead (really, GNOME devs?...)

They are working on it:

I like that they try to keep menus uncluttered, and the change above would make it more clear that there's some other options than just "Suspend".

Yes, there's lots of things to do still, but personally I think GNOME 3.0 was already very solid release despite its weaknesses. GNOME 3.2 improved it and GNOME 3.4 looks again better.

Why would it be so hard to add an extra menu item that says "shut down"?
