GNOME 3 wasn't designed to be parallel installable. Right?
continuing to repeat a meme won't make it become truth, you do realize that?
GNOME's platform is, and has always been, parallel installable - that's an acquired skill, and we've been saying how to do it properly for the past 10 years.
applications are not parallel installable (or, at least, they are not by default): there is no totem3 to be used alongside totem2, or nautilus3 to be used alongside nautilus2. that's perfectly fine, and it's up to the individual maintainers to decide that. you cannot run gnome-panel2 alongside with gnome-panel3 either, because (believe it or not) gnome-panel is an application; the applet library is parallel installable, though.
I sincerely hope that people stop repeating crap propaganda spewed by people with far less than the required amount of clue and an axe to grind.
