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 Shell is a crippled, half-working version that still requires a lot of manual or quirky programs to configure it to get anywhere near the earlier experience.

Gnome Shell is Gnome Shell, it's not Gnome 2. It's not MEANT to be anything like the earlier experience. If you use it as a desktop environment in its own right rather than just "They took away my Gnome 2" then you'll be much happier.

The whole thing is indeed not Gnome 2, it's called Gnome 3 - such name suggests a reasonably incremental modifications; something MEANT to be reasonably close to earlier experience.
