I dunno, it's starting to work for me... of course I stick KDE on top of 
it all, so the Unity thing vs the Gnome thing isn't an issue for me. I 
survived the KDE3 > KDE4 migration when they brought the old style menu 
button back, as an option. With the new KDE menu there is much fear and 
loathing from here. Giving me back what I'm used to fixed my pain. 
Someone had a compassionate moment.

MAYBE someone will come up with a "traditional style" theme for Gnome 3 
to make it act like Gnome 2 and then everyone will be happy? That would 
make sense, and not run off the original villagers. Ric
