    After half an hour with the Gnome 3 Shell I *really* want my old desktop back :(

    My initial impression is that all fundamental tasks, like launching apps, switching apps, switching desktops, etc, all take far more motions and/or clicks to accomplish than before. It appears as though all my app launchers have been pulled from their organized menus and dumped in a big messy pile I have to search through. And it doesn't look like I can customize the layout like I could before.

    Maybe it will grow on me, maybe I will learn and adapt (I'm trying to give the Gnome dev's the benefit of the doubt here), but as it stands after my initial half an hour, I *hate* it, and I don't think I'm going to be nearly alone?

    Hi, I'm here from the Hurd anti-defamation league, and wanted to point out that while progress is slow, it's actually doing pretty well.

    It's doing so well, in fact, it's *almost* ready for noobs like yourself to try:

If it happens once, it's a bug. If it happens twice, it's a feature. If it happens more than twice, it's a design philosophy.
