Before we ditch gnome, let's see what we can do with it first. For instance have we ever though of bundling rocket dock, or another desktop mod as the default theme?
That's essentially what I did with my windows system, I took out the task bar using rocket dock and I only have a docklet on the buttom of my screen.
It maximizes space, and it just makes the screen easy to look at. Let's not be too quick on blowing off a very well though out gui
