Hilarius. Gnome 3 was a terrible idea just as Metro is.

Ironically, Unity seems to be holding on with slow but sure adoption of what may be the most intuitive of the bunch.

Any experience with Gnome 3.8 "classic mode" here?

I think it's more along the lines of people installing vanilla Ubuntu and just running Cinnamon on it. Cinnamon is pretty good, I just prefer XFCE the way I tweaked it.

I think it's essentially Gnome Shell made to look like Gnome 2.32 or Gnome 3.x fallback.

Seconded for Cinnamon, I just installed Mint 14, with Cinnamon, and I'm fairly happy with it.

I'm wondering what took me so long, in fact.
