And the Frippery Static Workspaces extension available at http://extensions.gnome.org is not compatible with Cinnamon. Actually, all extensions available on that website are not compatible with Cinnamon.
The code in a GNOME Shell extension becomes part of the core operating system. For this reason, the potential exists for an extension to cause system misbehavior, crashes, or even to have malicious behavior like spying on the user or displaying unwanted advertisements. All extensions uploaded to this site are carefully reviewed for malicious behavior before they are made available for download. This process of code review is similar to the process for Firefox add-ons submitted to addons.mozilla.org.
Cinnamon is another attempt to make the GNOME 3 desktop acceptable to those in the community who have so far refused to have an unpalatable substance rammed down their throats.
I'm finding GNONE Shell to be very pleasant to work with,
And now I have the proof that we are right and the rest are wrong:

That should stir up a hornet's nest

I would love to read your comments on this one.

so there is an awful lot of interest in this project...i think that speaks volumes
oh it works great already (hard to believe it is an "alpha" as it sure doesn't feel like one as it is VERY STABLE...lol)

I don't agree that the overview should be removed but it needs an overhaul - the Themes tab ought to go back in Advanced Settings where it belongs, and the current overview launch methods look like what they are, marooned leftovers from Gnome Shell. The infinity icon makes no sense symbolically and gets in the way on top of windows, and the hot corner is probably not the best idea for a desktop aimed directly and only at traditionalists. The overview could also do with a keyboard combo a bit more intuitive than CTRL+ALT+UP (which you can't do with one hand) and an icon in the bottom panel, if at all (an icon that makes sense, a window icon or something).
