(Nearly) full tickless operation in 3.10
The Alt-Tab behavior and other things are just to different.
It also seems does not seem to want to be useful for dual-monitor setups.
I do intent to look into more GNOME Shell extensions and options, maybe try what the Linux Mint developers are doing: http://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=1851
And I don't think XFCE looks good as GNOME 2, it is also missing some of the useful parts I was used to in GNOME 2.
I actually like GNOME Shell looks, BUT

It's different, but It is actually much more useful, IMO.
The trouble with it is that if you are using Windows a lot and have to switch back and forth.

One of the things about alt-tab I don't like is that it lists applications from other desktops.
There is no other WM that does that and with other WM this is one of the reasons I have different desktops.
Each desktop is for a different task, why would I want to clutter the alt-tab list with the applications which are not related to my current task.
