Gnome Not even GNOME itself could ignore the GNOME 3 criticism for much longer. "As part of the planning for the DropOrFixFallbackMode feature, we've decided that we will compile a list of supported gnome-shell extensions. This will be a small list, focused on just bringing back some central 'classic' UX elements: classic alt tab, task bar, min/max buttons, main menu. To ensure that these extensions keep working, we will release them as a tarball, just like any other module."

Regardless of how much market share Gnome or Linux actually has, Gnome is probably the most financially backed DE for Linux. Second I would say was KDE. Gnome will probably not continue in its role if no one actually wants to use it. I think the real question is: "Will Red Hat ship Gnome 3 in RHEL 7 as the default DE?"

That is what you haters can't understand, that there are users who likes GNOME 3 and want to use it.

Are those Gnome3 fans outside of the Gnome Dev circle?

But seriously, What is the ratio of the Gnome3 fans verses detractors?

I believe that the Gnome3 project should have been more of a fork in itself aimed at the Tablet/touchscreen market as opposed to aiming for the mainstream Desktop arena.

Yes, they are: 14 year old Girls

They are using some type of Touch Tablet interface, since they've never used a desktop in their life for anything other than games... and oh wait that is all they do on the Tablets and IM and send SEXTING pictures.

AWESOME USER SET.

There is a concern about that. Fedora & CentOS already started to lose ground, this will eventually reflect on RHEL market. I am sure a company will understand this more than a few self-proclaimed god-like designers.

Ha ha ha ha, I'm sorry man, I just couldn't avoid it.

RedHat and CentOS are server OSs, some installations doesn't even use a DE or need it, if they are losing ground GNOME 3 is not the cause.

Don't know about RHEL 7, but Fedora 18 Beta has released with Gnome 3.6 as default DE. However, MATE, KDE, XFCE, LXDE, and something called SoaS (Sugar on a Stick) are options. Personally, I'm torrenting F18 Beta with XFCE ... cool, the dl just finished as I write!
