    What about Compiz with GNOME 3 Fallback?

    AFAIK, the fallback thingy only works with Metacity. I'm not a 100% on that, better to solicit advice from Gnome 3 users.

    So, will the Gnome debacle be dealt with in time for the Fall distros or is Spring looking more likely if at all?

Honestly, until the whole mess gets sorted out, why not just stay with that and carve up a Chakra/Arch(bang) partition and mess around with XFCE, or even Openbox or Compiz standalone? With some config file editing, and with using tint2/xfce4-panel + xcompmgr, xcompmgr-dana or cairo-compmgr if on Openbox, you can have a Gnome independent setup like you describe.

    Of course, the proper thing to do would be to use a tiler...
    You can use gnome 3 fallback with compiz...

    And docky/awn have plenty of their own applets to replace any missing gnome ones.

    The Archbang CD is a LiveCD and you can install from within the live environment.

    http://archbang.org/
    The download page has links to both 32 & 64 bit versions, bootable as a live CD / USB – allowing you to easily test it out before doing a full install.
    Here is installation guide with screenshots http://archvortex.blogspot.com/2011/...ion-guide.html
