Its very easy to add gnome-shell to SolusOS2
I have been running SolusOS2 since the first Alpha came out. Since many new extensions have come out for the Shell (must be around 100 now). I have added the gnome-shell to SolusOS2 and all the extensions I like. It works for me. I have a desktop with lots of RAM and a good video card. For those who don't, Ikey's new (yet un-named desktop) works beautifully with no graphic acceleration and a very small memory footprint.

I've patched gnome-panel for traditional interaction (no need for alt+click, combined context menu,
proper dragging/management). Nautilus has a patch so you can create launchers again. gnome-settings-daemon
is patched to use notify-osd, we use notify-osd by default so that we can have Compiz. The ugly
gnome notification-daemon looks out of place on a classic desktop too. gnome-control-center, totem, nautils
and gnome-panel are patched so that they use the system icon theme and not the symbolic icon theme.

General comments welcome on this thread .
The SolusOS team is pleased to announce the release of SolusOS 2 Alpha 5. This release utilises the Gnome Classic Desktop Environment 3.4 (not fallback), which is heavily tweaked to behave and look the same as Gnome 2. Please note that this is a development release and is not intended for use on production machines.
This time we’ve gone all out to give you the best looking Gnome desktop we can, and it’s increasingly difficult to tell the difference between our Gnome Classic and Gnome 2. We’ve gone to great lengths to improve the overall look and feel of the desktop whilst enhancing usability at the same time.
Linux 3.3.6-solusos (BFS/preempt)
Firefox & Thunderbird 13.0.1
Adobe Flash 184.108.40.206
That’s just a brief overview, in no way can we cover everything included. However, please note that non-free codecs are used in SolusOS to provide an out-of-the-box multimedia experience. We’ve also included firmware for some common wlan chipsets.
