    Amazingly simple, definitely easy to use (even if you're a "newbie"), yet retains all of the old features of Nautilus AND added a few extra. The only real change from "default" is that I changed the view from "Icon" to "Compact" and added a few folders to the sidebar.
    (icons are Numix-Circle, GTK theme is Numix)
    Looks almost as good as Thunar. I mean seriously, the feature list and ui design are similar, but in the end the Xfce file manager looks and feels just a bit slicker to me.

    Sure, but in that case, the screenshot is probably a bad example of "does this look cluttered", since we're comparing it with something that uses a much more compact layout...

    That'd be an unfortunate thing to do, as I'm quite happy running it on my old netbook, at 1024x600. True, some applications have dialog boxes that are too big to fit on the screen, and web browsing is best done with the browser in full-screen mode, but that's nothing unique to Shell. It's no worse than any other desktop or WM I've tried running on that hardware...

    My point is that even with all the bells and whistles the core UX is the same and the actual document view loses barely and vertical or horizontal window space. If having some words around the border is cluttered I could throw on a garden vine pattern in a gtk window border theme and make every Gnome app cluttered.

Of course there are a few things I don't like, just like in any other desktop environment, but it's nothing making me less productive.
    Yes, most of the things mentioned many times at lwn.net by ex-gnome 2 users. To name just few: removed features, tablet like DE and forcing users to use some shortcuts to make menu show up.

    Maybe, but you don't mean gEdit current look, do you?

    That was really constructive. However, what to expect from gnome fanboy who attacks those who don't love his favorite DE?

    It's a known troll account, you might as well not bother feeding it.
    Your attitude is against you. It's typical to trolls to call others like that.

    I didn't follow the discussions on lwn.net and as for myself I don't miss anything in particular that has been removed, so what features do you mean?

    tablet like DE
    I am not sure if GNOME 3 is actually usable with a tablet but as long as it doesn't affect my desktop experience - which it doesn't - I don't see any problem with that. But other users may have different workflows and use their DE in a different way, so maybe I'm missing something.

    and forcing users to use some shortcuts to make menu show up.
    Which menu?

    No. I am just saying that "copying iOS/Android" is not necessarily a bad thing.
