the new desktop is extremely different than what we’re aiming for

i too believe that maintain gnome2 is an impossible task:
- this is what debian considers must be done for the gtk2/gtk3 transition
http://lists.debian.org/debian-release/ ... 00111.html
so, i assume, if someone wants to maintain gnome2 has to backport all that

You actually need to INSTALL tools first that allow you to change the smallest things to configure Gnome 3, most things anyway need to be done by editing some kind of registry (yay, Windows users will like this) , you need to press various buttons to make settings ( Am I a indian goddess with 4 arms to be able to press 3 keys plus a mouse button) , Gnome 3 lacks of usability because the Gnome 3 developers believe that everyone out there is not knowing what to do and needs to be stoopped to change Jon Mc Cann's dark retro style Touchscreen GUI into something that matches their flavour.

Gnome has insulted every single user by assuming they are all I*itots, so this should be honored by not using their atrocity at all.
Gnome Shell? Made of dumbness? Just say: No, I am a mature user, your useless toy desktop was not made for me.
