Gnome "Clement Lefebvre, the Linux Mint founder, has started working on a GNOME Shell fork called Cinnamon, which tries to offer a layout similar to GNOME 2, with emphasis on 'making users feel at home and providing them with an easy to use and comfortable desktop experience'. Among the features that we'll probably see in Cinnamon are GNOME2-like notifications and systray icons, option to change the panel position and other panel options like autohide, etc. Some of these features are already available through Mint GNOME Shell Extensions (MGSE), but their functionality is pretty limited."

All those forks are a proof that Gnome 3 sucks, and Gnome should reverse to 2.x and stick to what works...
I am staying on Gnome 2 with RHEL clones, Ubuntu 10.04 and Mint 9... So much better that this nonsense...

No. All the forks of the GNOME 3 desktop shell shows that GNOME-Shell sucks.

The forks are all running on top of GNOME 3 itself.

No, all the forks of the GNOME 3 desktop shell shows that many users can't let the task bar go, I don't know the numbers, cause there is no way to know it, but they are pretty verbose.

So by that same logic Linux (the OS) sucks since there are so many distros.
