Well I quite like it!.......But it has it's downsides (no screen saver 
to name 1) but as with all things new in the LINUX world time will help 
as more brainy people than me continue to develop it.

A few pointers if you haven't found them already:

:- to add items to panels press <Alt> and then right click
:- The 'Online Accounts' should really be renamed 'Online Account' as it 
only supports Google accounts at the moment

Also (may be my machine but works on Xfce) 3D games such as 
'Foo-billiards' seem very slow and jerky on Gnome 3 (& Unity)

I am sure someone on this list will poo-poo it but as I said time 
improves all things LINUX (until they cease to be supported like my 
loved AWN!)

See post entitled Ubuntu loosing it's popularity for a long rant on 
Unity and Gnome 3 from Various people!

Have Fun I am!
