"GNOME is among the most widely used Linux desktop environments out there, if not *the* most widely used one. GNOME Shell is the latest incarnation of GNOME which is still undergoing heavy development. Months ago, we captured the evolution of GNOME Shell in detail and I think its time for another major GNOME Shell review.

"Installing and Testing GNOME Shell

"Last time when we reviewed GNOME Shell from Ubuntu, downloading and installing GNOME Shell was the easiest part because of the ricotz testing ppa which we have discussed before. But everything has changed in the last few months. Ricotz ppa is not updated anymore and if you want to download and install the latest GNOME Shell in Ubuntu, you need to build GNOME Shell from GIT. This is no easy thing to do. WebUpd8 has a incredible(and constantly updated) article describing how to do it if you are interested, but I chose to go with the GNOME Shell Live CD method instead."
