Gnome "Gnome 3 has received a lot of disapproval of late, from the Gnome foundation being charged with not taking care of its users, or losing mindshare, to Gnome 3 itself being an unusable mess. I've been using Gnome 3 myself for a few months to sort the truth from the fiction, and to try and understand just how the Gnome foundation expects their newest shell to be used. I will end with some thoughts on how Gnome 3 can be improved. The review will require a fairly lengthy preface, however."

Computers are limited to humans. If there were no humans and computers did exist, I doubt there would be things as GUI's and metaphors.

The limitations (including skeuomorphism) are not there for the computers, they are there to let their digitally inferior makers interface with them. So basically anything that makes interacting with these machines easier is a go, technically silly or not.
