I just finished setting up KDE for more prominent use. I never liked it
as much as gnome since it has a more "sluggish" feel to it; however,
gnome 3 has managed to make KDE seem like a Godsend.

I had a fleeting moment of hope when I noticed "Classic gnome with
compiz" on my login screen. It ended up looking like gnome 2, but with
1/4 the actual functions of the latter. It's simply gnome 3 fallback
mode. I never figured out how to add icons to the taskbars or desktop,
if that is even possible. It's also nice to have a nice taskbar at the
bottom to flip from app to app quickly. The gnome 3 workspaces are
simply annoying. The tweak tool works, but doesn't reduce the annoyance
much. It simply adds an extra screen as a speedbump.

It would be nice if the "classic gnome" selection at the logon screen
was the actual classic gnome with the full panel functionality seen in
gnome 2.
