I am totally won over by GNOME3 so far. It has turned out much better than I hoped. There are still some areas where it needs polish and it sorely lacks certain functionality and integration but the foundation is very nice.
Only sad bit is that it does not run on my ARM netbook on account of the.. well complete lack of capable video drivers. It kinda makes me feel all 90's nostalgic, ****** hardware and missing drivers.. ah how you kids complain today.
