Perhaps users who see the desktop as cellphone: play with one app for several minutes, switch to one other for several more minutes of amusement, will find it a useful paradigm -- I do not.
Actually, there is fairly little in GNOME 3 that makes it accomodate cell-phones. In fact, it's quite the opposite:
- It makes the user-interface more keyboard driven, by offering Spotlight/GNOME Do-like search as a central user interface element.
- It makes focuses on managing may Windows, with Exposé-like window management and application/window switching behavior.
Despite its deficiencies (e.g. fairly limited applets), I like it much more for use with big screens (plus keyboard) than GNOME 2.
