I don't think he's confused. I loved GNOME1. Then GNOME2 came out, and I couldn't tweek it as much as I wanted, because it was determined that "I really didn't need to do that" and "it's too confusing." So I moved to WindowMaker and XFCE. Kept trying GNOME2, occasionally using GHOME2 apps. GNOME3 came out - and I'm really moving to KDE for apps (as well as WindowMaker, XFCE, LDXE, and Enlightenment).
GHOME3 is another step away from supporting users, IMHO.
