My experience with main Fedora 17 using Gnome Shell again this year was an equally bad experience. I can find no love for this bastard child of Gnome. While Gnome 2 was one of the easiest desktop interfaces ever created, Gnome 3 is the most useless offspring of Gnome. But enough beating a dead horse, Gnome 3 cannot die soon enough.
Gnome 3 is extremely polished and its pleasant to use.

Anyway, a fresh installation isn't all that difficult, and it seems like I always learn something new. Besides, I'm weird, so I think doing installations is fun.
But it's good to know that PreUpgrade works out fine for some people. I might try it out one day.

What's interesting to me is that, so often, folks who don't like GNOME Shell have such strong feelings about it and feel the need to describe it in such disparaging terms. It isn't enough to say, "It isn't my preferred desktop," but instead it's a "bastard child" and "crap" and so forth.
