There is something wrong with the argument that Red Hat controls GNOME. In fact, GNOME 3's direction is not to Red Hat's interest... GNOME 3 is trying to make GNOME into a GUI for mobile devices, but Red Hat has shown no interest in getting into the mobile business... In fact, GNOME classic or MATE is a better environment for workstations or servers... look at the Red Hat servers today, when you login in, the typical UI woild be the clasic GNOME 2... GNOME 3 is aimed at a touch device and not suitable for the classical server environment or cloud environment.

I don't think GNOME 3 is aimed for mobile devices. Some thought seem to have been made to accomodate for touch screens, but that is not the same thing.

G3 is IMHO an excellent workstation GUI that is very much optimised for keyboard+mouse.

I have no idea what Gnome 3 is aiming at, but I agree that it's not in Red Hat's interests, whatever it is. If Red Hat were dictating development then classic mode would be the default, and the current default would be achieved through the extension mechanism.

I'm not saying that Fedora/Red Hat controls Gnome - intentionally or unintentionally. I'm just saying that as things have worked out, you want the best Gnome experience, you end up with Fedora. Not intentionally, by any means, just more a "Oh. Okay, so now what?" thing...
