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'm on the fence about it myself. The more I use it on my netbook under Arch, the more I like it. It seems to be made just for such a device, and it's a far cry better than Unity. I think in the long run I'll go back to Xfce for a while, but I'll continue to play with Gnome-Shell from time to time.

That said, the binary blob config files bug me, and the fact that it took me ages to figure out how to get it to shut down really pissed me off. I doubt I'll ever use it on the desktop machine.
