Gnome "GNOME 3.4 introduces a range of new features. A new document search facility allows quick access to content stored both on your device and online. Smooth scrolling means that moving through content is slick and graceful. New application menus, which are located on the top bar, provide a useful way to access application options and actions." And a lot more.

You are *really* stretching the facts by claiming that ubuntu and mint use gnome3 as their default DE. The distinction your are drawing between gnome3 and gnome-shell is misleading.

Do you mean gtk3? All use gtk3 which is not the same thing at all. Mint uses a fork for gnome3. Only Fedora is using stock gnome3 which is what we're all complaining about here.

If you're claiming that gnome == gnome-shell then your post is misleading.

According to https://www.gnome.org gnome-shell does look a core part of GNOME.

And even then... the GNOME 2-like "fallback desktop" that the grandparent poster mentioned is only there because the real GNOME 3 does not support non-3D-hardware-accelerated display. So, enjoy it while it lasts, because as soon as the actual GNOME 3 desktop can run without 3D hardware acceleration, your precious fallback desktop will be removed.

Luckily, a large handful of replacements--from complete forks (Cinnamon) to continuations of the previous version (MATE) have been started for those of use who just don't like the nutty, arrogant marketing direction GNOME team is taking. And of course there are more alternative environments, both window managers and complete desktop environments, that should be able to please the rest of us.
