Default Fedora 17 & GNOME 3.4: Return to a useful Linux desktop (Review)

To tell you the truth, I don't understand what people see of too bad
in Gnome 3.X. I confess that I had some difficult at the beginning,
but after some days, I loved it! Gnome 3 is the redefinition of the
concept of desktop enviroment. Maybe people be just afraid of the
change...

I think that's basically it, but maybe annoyed by change is a more apt
description. I've gotten used to GNOME 3, but at first, I was pretty
grumpy about it. I really missed gnome-panel, in particular.

To be honest, I've moved from Fedora 16 with GNOME 3 into Ubuntu with Unity environment and I'm amazed. Ubuntu eats less RAM, gives better battery consumption results and most important: Unity made me more productive.


And yes, I liked GNOME 3 and I feel native in it

Well, I know about tens of users that have left Unity for either GNOME 3
in Ubuntu or another distribution for two reasons: Unity is slow (which
really is) and not productive. Some of them were power users.
In my experience, most people that have equally tried both Unity and
GNOME 3 like GNOME 3 more.

But there is no generally better environment. Everyone can pick what he
likes.
