Oops, I now realize that this is in fact in TFA. I did not initially read it to that point, shame on me. This is big news, I did not expect this at all.

It will be interesting to watch how it turns out. It might obsolete Cinnamon if it is done well. I am not a fan of forking everything if that can be avoided...

Clasen: GNOME 3.7 at the halfway mark

Not to dampen your enthusiasm, but it doesn't seem likely that the classic mode will ever catch up with Cinnamon: I seriously doubt that they'd pour much effort into it because it might threaten their "vision" (not to speak of the "brand" ;) wrt Gnome Shell.

One could also remark that not such thing as a "classic mode" would have been conceived if it were not for the success of GNOME 2 and 3 forks (Mate, Cinnamon).

At this point in time, I'm pretty happy with Cinnamon as is: it's much more than a "classic mode", although among other things Nemo kept all the useful features that they threw away with Nautilus, and more stuff is coming with Cinnamon 1.8 (http://www.webupd8.org/2012/12/what-to-expect-in-linux-mi...).
