Ubuntu and Mint don't want it; Linus called it an
"unholy mess." While most other distros are passing up or
postponing GNOME Shell, Fedora is full steam ahead. Does Red Hat
know something the rest of us don't? Or is GNOME 3 really as bad as
Like Unity, GNOME Shell is the victim of polarizing extremes.
Both new interfaces seem to be met with either adoration or
outright hostility. Ubuntu took a pass on GNOME Shell, and so did
Linux Mint. Linus Torvalds, the father of Linux, called it an
?unholy mess? on Google+. And thus, the aggregate opinion of GNOME
3 seems to be pretty negative so far (even more so than Unity).
