I can kind of understand what the author of that article means, though. While I could manage without min-/maximize-buttons, the shutdown-option was a remarkably heavy loss. I had to log out, and shut down from the display manager. Well, since I fell back to KDM when GDM got... a bit too funky from the experimentation, I'd probably have to do that anyway, but still. Maybe not a deal-breaker, but the likelyhood of me adopting Gnome Shell will increase markedly with an option to shutdown completely from inside Gnome...

What do you think of his conclusion? I am willing to switch to Gnome 3, but I have some of the same reservations re: right click, multiple windows in focus, etc.Don't mistake conservative for inefficient. I just want my efficiency. Can you promise that? If not, then we shall have to part ways. Unfortunately, Gnome 3 does not have what it takes to be my desktop. And so we say goodbye. For now. Linux Mint, let's hope you can deliver. Like Princess Leia says: Help me, Linux Mint, you're my only hope.
