You are probably right about the gnome-shell issue...it probably is an ati catalyst driver issue. I don't like gnome shell that horribly much in the first place. It's OK, but not better than any other DE at this point, so I don't care, I'll just use others.

Descent level or not, bottom line, they don't fit for the job. I am AMD fanboy myself, but I do change my opinion of brands, based on performance.

Same as lienmeat.
