Having used Gnome3 for some time now, with the extensions I needed to
unbreak the most baffling of design decisions, I've got to say that
I think Gnome is still far and away the least rubbish of the Linux DEs
(certainly of the three I've used recently - Gnome 3, KDE4, XFCE). 

*nobody* is managing polished and entirely working because as soon as
they get anywhere near that and actually have themselves a content
userbase, they feel the need to sack it and start again.

As soon as XFCE gets anywhere near consistency, stability and
feature-completeness (and, let's face it, they've some way to go) I'm
sure they'll also do a Gnome3/KDE4/Unity/whatever.
