and yes...top panel can be moved to the bottom as well! (though he doesn't show that in video but i see the top/bottom "orientation tab" is in the panel preferences

I'm so glad you had posted that video on you tube (it's very good by the way)...so i can show the "doubting thomases" here that it can be done fairly easily which also should mean that Clem shouldn't have too much of a problem having both the gnome 3 base without unity or shell and the traditional (and great) classic MINT desktop
And yes indeed, regarding putting the panel on the bottom, that is easy also...and in fact i saw a picture of someone's desktop where he used the fallback mode and he did exactly that...

Why should a user that has already a limitid space(with the "new" trend for laptops having the 1366x768 resolution the fun is doubled) should bare the bottom or the top panel when he actually need is more workspace?!?! The solution is simple - simply remove a panel(in my case the botttom one) and put all the active windows on the top one.
