So, I've spent the last 2 days using +Fedora Project 's #beefymiracle  .  Many of you know it as Fedora 17.

Now I'm not saying that I want to switch distros at this point, and this doesn't really have much to do with Fedora itself, but Gnome 3.4 in it's most stock configuration is one hell of a sedative...

I spent some time forcing myself to get used to having no minimize, and using the multiple desktops the way the Gnome project had intended.

I was able to concentrate.

I am a person who gets sidetracked very easily.  So easily in fact that I surprised myself every time I can complete a 1000 word plus editorial.

Libre Office felt really integrated, as if it were made for Gnome 3...

The muted colors of the folders and windowing elements are pretty much perfect.  It's not beautiful like Faenza or anything, but that's not the point.  It works, and I have work to do.  

People will always go out of their way to bash things that they don't understand, and Gnome 3 is no different.  To those who have gone out of their way to avoid it, I would implore you to give it a real shot.  And by real shot, I mean, learn to use it effectively and then compare that with the effectiveness of what you are already using.

I don't know if this will turn into a full time thing or not, but I might switch too it full time.  Whether that be Fedora, or Ubuntu 12.10 and the supposed Gnome 3 edition, I don't know.

I have 4 systems on my computer.  Windows 7 and three Linux versions.  Fedora is my favorite, and then, in preference, Debian (clean fast), Ubuntu and Mint. 

With Fedora, right click on the window frame. Minimize is the 2nd entry.
 
I tried KDE, written with Qt. Very functional, but very heavy in overhead. I am accustomed more to Gnome3.x because of Fedora. But I prefer Gnome2 vanilla above all. Dragging icons to the G2 panel makes the Panel my favorites bar.  And I like 4 virtual desktops.
