Glad you like GNOME. Try also the GNOME mailing list some time too

As for the buttons:
Open dconf-editor and modify the org.gnome.desktop.wm.preferences schema.

Eventually, after I installed GNOME 3 customized with Cairo-Dock made my Laptop a unique talked about Laptop in my area. It looks so good in the sense that it combines both features of Mac and Windows 8. This is awsome. However what I just dislike about it is the minimize, maximize and close button of a window at the right handside. I really prefer them at the left handside which always remind me that yes I am on linux not windows.
