Gnome is beautiful but OsX is better ;)
And they only care about users ready to use their interface, whatever this is, and they do software for them, only them.

Perhaps in Gnome OS the proprietary GPU drivers will be automatically installed to provide you with the best gnome experience, why not ? Evidenty there will be many opponents...
Dropping fallback session means dropping gnome altogether.
The new and shiny gnome-shell is something totally different than what used to be gnome, it's something else. It may share the same infrastructure, but from the users perspective it's totally different.
For me, the only thing allowing gnome 3 to call itself gnome wash the possibility to run a "classic" session. Even when it was a hurt and disabled one. From the user point of view gnome isn't a bunch of libraries, tools and technologies, but a defined desktop environment with a defined way of working. An environment that you could customize more or less, that you could adapt to or not, that you may like or not, but a defined environment after all. The new shell of gnome 3 is a different environment, where everything but the common tools is different. It could have used a new name, but then they would have lost the prestige behind the gnome brand. So instead of that they chose to keep it and kill it.
Dropping the fallback session means dropping what was left of gnome, leaving us with something different under the same name, something that can't be used the same way, that forces you to use the system in a new way, no matter if it gets in your way, no matter if it's a toy that prevents you from working comfortably (yes, some of us actually do WORK with the computer and don't expend all day with social networking, watching cat videos and porn). So dropping the only usable session on gnome 3 means the true gnome is dead and the new "gnome" is the only option.... or that it's time to change desktop for something else.
After many years of being the most used desktop environment, gnome developers betrayed their users, so after being one of those users since gnome 1.0 I find myself needing a new desktop.
Luckily xfce is a nice replacement.
Gnome is dead! SHORT live the new Gnome!
