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.

That's a design failure. If you have a settings file that is so large that it takes 10 seconds to read from it you need to fix the design. You could, for example, break it up into one file per application which is what KDE does. If *one* application creates a text file that big for settings than you're obviously storing stuff in the settings file that shouldnt be there.
