Allright, it looks as though I'll have to spend more time with Gnome 3 
fallback before I can opine on the subject.  Unfortunately, my first day 
with Gnome 3 sent me running screaming in the opposite direction.  I've 
created a very.... familiar desktop by combining XFCE, compiz, gnome 
bits (Nautilus, gedit, EOG, Volume control, etc) and Docky.  
Unfortunately, there is no distro that comes close to such a desktop out 
of the box.  Ubuntu 11.04 was the last and only that came close.

Still, whatever Desktop you like, I think Ubuntu remains the most 
polished base to start from.
