Gnome "I'm writing to inform you that the release team discussed Drop or Fix Fallback Mode yesterday. We've come to the conclusion that we can't maintain fallback mode in reasonable quality, and are better off dropping it." Gnome-fallback has been my refuge, as I find both Unity and Gnome 3's shell unusable. Yes, we have been warned this would happen. I thought the cost of maintaining gnome-panel would be so low that it might never need to happen. But as it appears, it is deemed necessary. As for me, I'm bound for something Qt, as I am very angry at Gnome for abandoning its 'classic' users.

And I suspect they're hoping to force fallback users into the Gnome shell fold. I think it will work against them.

I think that's exactly what they're doing - trying to force people into their indoctrination.

Not at all. There's a bug report* about making it even easier to get a GNOME2-like setup under GNOME Shell for the people that still want that kind of Windows 95-inspired experience.
