And this has been my #1 complaint about Gnome3. I just don't work well with the gnome3 workflow. I really liked gnome2 and after a decade of tweaks I really streamlined my workflow with it. Gnome3 destroyed that. I've said it in the past and I'll say it again...
The biggest thing I hate about Gnome3 is that it took gnome2 away from me.
