You bring up something different, higher resource usage compared to metacity/compiz. GNOME shell is based on clutter, etc. Totally different than metacity.

If bugs relating to leaks have been fixed, and things are due to improve in future releases, that's great.

In practice the slowness is often combination of compositing and drivers btw (aside from just outright gnome-shell bugs :P). Use gnome-shell on another system or with another driver and you'll see a huge difference.

Staying relevant is the exception. Linux still is. C++ and even C still are. Intel, astonishingly, still is. TCP/IP is. Things don't look too good for Java or for habeas corpus. One of those will be missed even by people who say we never really had it.

gnome-documents is pretty fast. Try it.
