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."

Another Data Point.

I was a HUGE GNOME Fan. All about it early on. even the 1.4 version (which I think was the best one ever). 2.x began to grand on my by about 2.10, with the The vaunted Jeff Waugh and other (who shall not be named) decried "SANE DEFAULTS" and "MINIMUM CUSTOMIZATION TOOLS"

Bleah.

I can add several data points. I know few linux users, and all of them were using GNOME2. None of them uses GNOME3.

And I know several that made the jump from GNOME 2 to GNOME 3 or even from others DE, but you don't see them posting in troll nests like this one.
