I'm running Pantheon and so far am not missing GNOME/Unity.
It would have been a nice default for Ubuntu. Who needs Compiz and accelerated graphics? An OS should just work!
It's time to get over it, there are enough other DE's out there, that it shouldn't be to hard to find another one that suites you, whether it's Cinnamon, Mate, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, or any of the others that are available.
For old Gnome style with more customizability XFCE is the ticket, for customizability and a slightly different look KDE is awesome (which is what I'm using now, although I also like Unity and Gnome 3).
The Gnome devs moved past the old paradigm, no point hanging on to the past. XFCE, KDE, Unity and Gnome Shell are the future.
@ irv and wheeze
Ah, I see. I went back to try to find the post where I read that and I found it here...
