    All they need now is to make it work like GNOME 2.

      How about more options in the control panel.. Hopefully aim for feature parity with Gnome 2 in terms of settings. I mean c'mon, why is there no screensaver in Gnome 3??

        Screensavers belong to the 90's. Everything that is not there was removed by purpose. Read Free Software UI, section "The Question of Preferences" to understand.

                That's all fine in general, but some configuration options are still needed. E.g. monitor refresh rate configuration. Without that option I have to open a terminal and type "xrandr -r 85" every time I reboot my pc because it always reverts to 60Hz which makes my eyes bleed. Wow, that sure is user firendly! Not everybody is using LCDs and besides that having one extra combo box in there wouldn't ruin the clean interface anyway.

                  Maybe you should get rid of your CRT... Ati disliked my modelines too i usually used for 1152x864@100, but then my CRT died and the problem was solved somehow

                    Wow! So easy!! How could I have not thought of that before??

                    Now on a more serious note, I tend to have a hard time getting rid of stuff that is still working properly so I'll do like you did and wait for it to die before buying a new one.
                    I love the new linux desktops (Gnome3 and Unity) and I have no problems adapting to new situations, but even with all that flexibility I still miss some things from the old days, but overall I think the new workflow allows me to do more stuff faster than before.
