In terms of UI, the fallback mode is something nobody wants. Gnome 3 enthusiasts don't like its Gnome2-like design. Gnome 2 fans hate the fact that it simply doesn't work. Of course, it works.... but it looks like it doesn't work. And the reason for this is simple... it looks and gives people the impression they're running Gnome 2, only they're not. They're actually running Gnome 3 on top of GTK3 and without compatibility with Bonobo and panel applets. Once the user understands he can use the Alt key to interact with the panel, he gets a bit of false hopes... until he goes further and realize no Bonobo Gnome applet will run on this Fallback mode. To Mint users, basically, that means no mintMenu.

If you run mintmenu from console, a new window appears. All it's features look nicely!
This is really disappointing - it will be very very cool if it can be integrated into the panel...
I don't know much about gnome3 panels, and I hate it's unconfigurability. So if anyone knows how to integrate already working mintmenu into panel, I'll appreciate it much!
