This video is a very customized setup of KDE not the default at all. He added a panel to the left with one of the various Taskbar plasmoids probably Icontasks, shifted buttons to the left and otherwise. You want to take a look at the default download the openSUSE 12.3 beta, and you'll see it's just the same as before.

So am I the only one who left KDE 4 for Gnome 3? I'll keep quiet in this flame war then...
I don't think GNOME have any clear direction.
Maybe some people in the team just did some random crazy things so they could write something fancy about doing UX on their resume.
They forced something on that nobody wanted and alienated a lot of users.
Big companies like Microsoft and Apple throw out millions on inventing stuff, getting it tested, getting user response, etc.
GNOME doesn't have those resources, yet they still wanted to invent, so they just come up with random untried stuff that nobody really liked and didn't listen to feedback.
It doesn't take millions of user feedback loops to know what is and isn't a steaming pile of shit. You just need to use it yourself for a few hours to figure it out. You also don't need a massive R&D department to figure out more efficient ways to create a desktop: can the user do their work faster / with less thinking this way than the old way? Improvement. Does it impede their ability to get stuff done? Regression.

For that matter, so is WindowMaker. Feature complete and tight as a drum.
note: there were screen shots here but crap my host is messing up.
Flaws with KDE:
Oxygen sucks. It's horrendous on the eyes. But you can change it. Also you can increase font sizes.
Flaws with Gnome:
I can't change the font by default. Glass Jungle, village, or just garden. Holy Cow!
Like in other threads about Gnome3, I just want to balance out all the hate and say I really like it. All the negativity held me back from using it, giving me a preconceived opinion, but now I'm happy I did. Look forward to how it develops (like the example with Gnome 2.0 and 2.32). Sure there's Mac envy, but the whole world has that. In my opinion I much much prefer Gnome3 to OSX. The usability and workflow in Gnome3 feels more comfortable for me than OSX, which I have to use some times (no idea about Win8, don't care a bit).
Maybe I'm in the minority with this opinion. I loved Gnome1, hated the early Gnome2, used E16 exclusively for ~6 years, went back to late Gnome2 because of work, tolerated it and then liked it. Now I like working in Gnome3, and actually am a bit excited about it. We're all different, but I must say the hate is getting old.
One thing that will make me scream with anger though, is if Gnome3 removes the ability to use sloppy focus! Can't work without it, and hate OSX for not giving me the option. Please don't copy that, Gnome-devs!
Lastly, I agree TweakTool should be build in, makes no sense it is a separate download. And I use dual monitors, no problem with that (essential for my work, so happy it works like before). Haven't tried 3 monitors though.
