    One question: this Gnobuntu, or whatelse, is a sort of GNOME "vanilla" (ubuntu patches free, like to Debian, Fedora, Arch, etc) or is a "simply" Ubuntu with GNOME Shell by default?

    Did you read the thread?

    Personally, I wouldn’t see the point of a separate spin if it boils down to a meta-package with some dependencies that differ from the default seed. If GNOMEbuntu then go all the way.

    One advantage would be that I would again be able to pester the Gnome developers upstream in a timely manner. Right now the delta is too large (see, e.g., nautilus, gnome-control-center, gnome-settings-daemon, gnome-shell)

    These gesture patches were crash prone earlier. I remeber that I had to push an eog without those patches to my PPA, because I had had to live without eog for months on my work PC because it would segfault on startup every time.

    Are you one of the Ubuntu developers too ? Just curious

    Have a look at the Gnome Control Center here:

    Seems that Rico Tzschichholz has done several improvements

    There's also a link to the Ubuntu GNOME Edition homepage.

    Re: GNObuntu ?

    From Stinger:
    Does anyone know if there is any development going on for a pure Gnome edition of 12.10?
    Well,I am running Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal Pure 100% Gnome Edition with no traces of Unity and it's not from any developer.You can do this yourself in say less than 20 minutes.It actually runs smoother than Unity graphics ways,could i say more stable,so smooth it looks like a finished product but Gnome still brings new things everyday.
    Note:This is not just Gnomeshell over Unity.It is Gnome 3.5.90 Latest stable,the Beta is at 3.6.0

    Re: GNObuntu ?

    By adding the ricotz/testing and ricotz/staging ppa to quantal and installing gdm be enough to test this out? Should I also remove unity and is their any other ppa's I should add? How's the general stability

    not enough,you must install gnome from it's ophan state to be real gnome 100% and all traces of unity must be removed,something like this:

    1-sudo apt-get install gdm gnome-shell synaptic deborphan (offcourse select gdm)
    2-sudo apt-get remove unity unity-2d unity-2d-common unity-2d-panel unity-2d-shell unity-2d-spread unity-asset-pool unity-common unity-lens-applications unity-lens-files unity-lens-music unity-lens-video unity-scope-musicstores unity-scope-video-remote unity-services indicator-messages indicator-status-provider-mc5 appmenu-qt appmenu-gtk appmenu-gtk3 lightdm unity-greeter overlay-scrollbar zeitgeist zeitgeist-core zeitgeist-datahub activity-log-manager-common activity-log-manager-control-center
    3-sudo apt-get autoremove
    4-sudo reboot (choose Gnome at login)
    5-sudo apt-get purge `deborphan`
    6-sudo dpkg --purge `dpkg -l | egrep "^rc" | cut -d' ' -f3`
    7-sudo apt-get autoremove
    8-sudo apt-get autoclean
    9-sudo reboot
    We will then have a clean Ubuntu 12.10 and distilled, with only Gnome.

    I hope the Mods fellows here don't start getting upset.Thank You.

    Yeah I know, have done that earlier, there are several ways to do that.
    But an official supported version is the purpose of this thread and what I aim for.8)
    To quote myself from earlier:
