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.

Give LXDE a try?

Does LXDE count as DE yet? ;) (hm, it seems to have it in the name! ;) )

Definitely feels fast ...even on quite old hardware. It seems also curiously solid and reliable already. But, quite basic of course (OTOH, stays out of the way)

And it seems to be going quite mainstream (as far as one can use this term with Linux) - while not a totally reliable indicator, the position held by Lubuntu (for some time now) on Distrowatch ranking is nothing to be scoffed at (also compared to Xubuntu, or Kubuntu)
