[clug] GNOME 3 in trouble according to El reg. True or a beat up?

TL;DR but after a few weeks of suffering gnome3 I switched
to xfce (and set up my old environment) and never looked back.

My shortcuts did not even get migrated when I upgraded to f16
(and hence gnome 3)!

Maybe I am too conservative but I do not like to be forced
to change my ways if I feel comfortable and effective with
things as they are.

Could it be that Gnome really will just die?
