I like Gnome 3 Shell. I use it on Ubuntu instead of Unity so I haven't had any problems adjusting on Mint 12 but it seems out of place when you consider what Mint 11 was like and what Mint 13 will probably be like. In a few years when you look back at the prevoius releases Mint 12 will look like an odd ball release imo.
i was using Ubuntu 10.10 and then switched to LM 12 after a major crash. Indeed, for something that is touted as newbie-friendly, I do not find it as such compared to when I started with ubuntu 10.04. I guess this could also be attributed to my first exposure to Gnome 3, which I'm still not really getting used to. The lack of documentation for LM 12 is another hurdle, since a lot of things epxlained in the LM 11 documentation are now quite different.
