"plus my laptop screen is 1280x800 so it's pretty hard to have more than 4 tiles at any time if I did use tiles"
This is my main objection to GNOME 3. I really like GNOME 3 on my laptop. It's a major step backwards on my multimonitor desktop. I think MS is making exactly the same mistake with Windows 8. On small devices, optimizing use of single applications (whether those applications be tabbed or otherwise) makes sense -- keeping lots of terminals and such around on a little screen doesn't work very well.
Sadly, having the GNOME 3 big-screen experience be different from the small-screen experience would be "inconsistent". Sigh.
