I'm using Gnome 3 (Mint 12 with the Mint Gnome Shell 
Extensions) and I like it a lot. I like the fact that there 
are extensions that allow you to customize your desktop. Mine 
is customized to resemble a classic Mint Gnome 2 desktop (one 
panel on the bottom), however I'm also finding that I use the 
infinity button (activities menu) quite often. I'm also liking 
the alt f2 feature that brings up the run command prompt.

My prediction is that Gnome 3 will be very customizable in the 
near future thanks to the Gnome Extensions that are 
continually being developed. Unity will most likely be more 
customizable as time goes on as well.

The more I use Gnome 3 the more I'm liking it.
