    I don't like it.
    First, it cut to much out of Ubuntu.
    Second, I really really like Unity, so why would I switch.

    OK, what's your take on this?
    I don't really care about Gnome Shell myself I like Unity..... if I was going to switch it'd be to XFCE or LXDE or maybe even KDE... but definitely not gnome3

    As it is, I am very much hoping Canonical either fork nautilus or adopt something like dolphin instead... the gnome team seem to be messing everything up!

    Re: GNOME-flavoured Ubuntu Spin Coming

    Personally, I'm glad to see this happen. Frankly, the only time I use Unity is on test boxes. On my work machine, I can't get rid of it fast enough. Unity may have improved in some areas with each release, but I still find it much less usable than Gnome-shell.

    Use what works best for you. For me, that's Gnome-shell.

    I have been trying a Gnome spin for an associate.it's Gnome spin Fedora 17, frankly it is terrible, I doubt that a Gnome spin Ubuntu will be any improvement.

    Some people will like it, others won't use it; it can't hurt, so why not?

    On a more serious topic, what colour will the [gnomebuntu] forum thread tag be?

    I used Unity for about 2.5 weeks, and I still didn't like it after, nor GNOME3. I will forever be with LXDE / XFCE as such =/

    It probably won't have a tag on UF for about 3 months at least.

    If its Gnome 3 (and im sure it is) thats a no go for me... not because i don't like the layout; I really think Gnome 3 has something against my current video card (ati)- it is PAINFULLY slow and stutters..
    Though Unity 3D seems so lightweight its ridiculous.

    Re: GNOME-flavoured Ubuntu Spin Coming

    Seeing as there have been respins of Ubuntu with every other desktop environment and window manager in the repositories, not having a Gnome respin would be a considerably glaring omission, would it not?

    And, hrm, what happened to all the people who were screaming for "Gnobuntu" when 11.04 came out?

    That's the whole point, right there. You don't like it, and you like Unity, so you wouldn't want to switch. There are a lot more preferences out there that people have than just yours. Personally, I like Gnome Shell way more than Unity. I think it's great to have that choice.

    That said, I probably won't use it either. I've recently found out that I like the latest KDE better than them all. It's come a long way since 4.0 when I last tried it.

    KDE sure gets my vote

    I still want to have Gnome 3 as a session though, incase i want to mess with it sometime. I like to have all the DE, just to say i have used them.
    Hell- i'd have Looking Glass on 12.04 if i could- just to mess with it.
