OpenSuse Gnome is no different than Ubuntu Gnome though, they use a 
stock Gnome UX but they do add a custom wallpaper and a popup guide at 
the start.

I agree with others that we shouldn't aim to change the "Pure" Gnome UX, 
but I do feel adding in maybe a "Starters Guide" or something similar 
that links to the wiki and gives details would probably be a good idea.

Ubuntu Gnome does add the "User Menu" extension as default plus Tweak 
Tool, maybe add the stock "gnome-shell-extensions-common" and that 
"should" be enough of a foot in the door to help.

I've been using 13.10 daily without issues, it's actually rock solid, I 
personally would like to see a slight "branding" as it were to Ubuntu 
Gnome. Custom wallpaper and maybe an icon set that adheres to Ubuntu 
(gnome shell is pretty neutral color wise) would be a nice addition, 
maybe not for this release but for future ones.
