    At least the underlying Parts of Gnome3 seem to work more or less properly by now.

    I personally use gnome with Compiz and AWN ... so I won't hat problems with that.

    But I'd love to try Gnome Shell once the dust settles.

    xfce is by now just as bloated and slow as gnome/kde. I'd shun all the three.

    Surely there must be ways around that?

    Anyways, isn't there an exception if the laptop is connected to an external screen?

    It's about time proper suspend across all graphics driver will become a serious requirement. In that sense Gnome isn't so bad...

    It did seem to slow down with 4.8.x, though I've only tried it with Ubuntu. Hopefully, by the time it hits Debian sid, it will be optimized/tweaked.
