Sorry if I insist with that but, actually there is (at least for me) some
bugs in the gnome desktop that I can't wait 6 months for a fix.
Releasing just after a new version of gnome, means that ubuntu will always
have the first stable gnome release without the latest bugfixes. Is not
about have bleeding edge stuff, but have working stuff.
Maybe I've missed something? If I'm wrong I will be happy...
