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.

gnome-fallback mode is CRAP. I used gnome for almost 10 years and gnome 3 drove me to macintosh. The inability to turn off the bottom panel and merge all the stuff on it to the top one made it unusable compared to gnome 2.


Of course you can do that. I tried it myself:

1) Alt+Right-click on bottom panel -> "Delete this panel"
2) Alt+Right-click on top panel -> "Add to panel" and add window list and workspace switcher
3) Move the clock from center to right with Alt+Middle-click + drag

And on Macintosh you can customize your panel? lol.
