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.

Maybe not conspiracy, but with how Gnome is now the closest thing to the Linux DE, Gnome-Shell will probably end up being pushed to quite a few folks (who could do better without the... experience)

So - why "hijack" the brand like that? If toying with such quite radical changes - a new name would be appropriate; even within similar theme / meaning.

MIDget (get it? MIDs) could probably do fine. Or Dwarf. Goblin would fit, perhaps; Leprechaun or Imp - certainly.
Or Brownie (the Scottish folklore type - but yes, it should recollect the That '70s Show kind which Hyde made)
