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."

I don't like the workspace placement either, but a few suggestions will cut down the number of actions easily
1) you don't really need to click the activity button, just hit the very corner with the pointer or
2) hit the super ( windows) key to open the overview, and then
3) you don't need to click on the search box, just start typing right away and press enter to launch the first result, or use cursor keys/ mouse to select one of the filtered items
So it's basically like gnome-do for launching ( hit a key, start typing, press enter ), and a single click to launch from your favorite apps or to select a window exposé-like.
I actually find that quite good, just don't get me started on the alt-tab navigation. Now that's clumsy.

I like the new alt-tab, cause using alt+(the key above tab) will switch only betwen the windows of the same application.

Ah, those do make it a lot easier. Maybe Gnome should have some sort of introductory tutorial?

I am using 3.6 and it's the first version of Gnome 3 I've liked. Its not a bad environment to work in and I am using it daily as my main PC is in repair.

You might find useful this slightly outdated (3.4) page:
https://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell/CheatSheet

And afaik jimmac is working on tutorial videos for first-time users; you can see a work-in-progress cut here:
