Cinnamon is a fork of GNOME Shell and still uses the rest of GNOME 3.

It's a pity that Canonical didn't put their Unity investment into
creating it on top of GNOME 3 (like it's designed for). They could have
collaborated and just shipped their Unity Shell (instead of GNOME Shell).

Has anyone actually given GNOME 3.4+ a go? I have to say it's pretty
darn impressive.
