When I was the Co-Maintainer for the Fedora Design Suite Spin, we
recently had a related discussion on the move to Gnome-Shell when it was
available. And seeing as the main Red Hat/Fedora distro was moving to
G3, we were considering whether to also move to G3 or stick with a
stable version of Gnome 2.x.

After weighing up the pros/cons, we decided that it would be too much
effort and manual labor to stick with an interface that was different
from that of our mainstream 'mother' distro.

I assume the same outcome will come out of this announcement for Ubuntu
and Ubuntu Studio.
