I use FluxBox, OpenBox and WindowMaker on some of my Atom CPU devices, yes. But on my main desktop (quad core, 64-bit, 8 GB RAM) I don't mind having bells and whistles turned on ...

Hard to believe but GNOME 3 is worse than Unity. GNOME 3 is such a bad bad bad joke IMHO. Seriously. I read the developer blogs again and again and read about why they decided certain things ... and I can't help but bang my head against the table again and again, some of those decisions and the explanations given are sooooooo utterly stupid
For example: They removed the "minimize" button. The argument being that there is no dock or anything a program window would minimize to ... So what!? Who needs a dock? I just want a program window to get out my way. Even if there is no dock I can still bring it back with e.g. Alt+Tab ... So they removed the button. BUT: they left the option in the right-click menu! So you can still right-click on a program's title bar and choose "minimize" from there. Hey wait ... I thought there is nowhere a window can minimize to? But why do they remove one minimize option but leave the other minimize option in there?? Why not remove both -- or -- which would have been the more intelligent thing -- leave both options alone and implement a task list, window list, dock or whatever??
GNOME 3 is full of such IMHO utterly strange decisions.
So for me it's "thank you + bye bye". I loved to use GNOME 2.x ... but GNOME 3 and Unity are driving me away, back to KDE and other window managers.
