Does it work? I remember trying gnome shell once, when it wasn't released yet, and it was just horribly slow on my laptop (HD4570 vid. card).
Has anything changed in the meantime? I've installed Gnome 3 on a different pc with intel graphics, and I rather like it.
Thing is, I'm not upgrading ubuntu unless I can use Gnome 3, since I prefer Gnome 2 over unity.
