That pretty well sums up everything about Gnome 3, and that was the kind and polite version.
Mother of God, atleast KDE never needed a "fork" !!!
...in fact, just use "Mate"-(The newer, and better "fork" of Gnome2), or Cinnamon-(The newer, and better ehhem "fork" of Gnome3).
Unfortunately, from a Users' perspective, those Gnumb-skull devs still haven't came out of their suicidal psychosis'. Oh wait, you mean they changed that buttun's name from "Fallback" to "Classical" finally ? -uhhh, so there may be hope afterall ? ya, crap to that.
Actually, just forget about Gnome3 period.
Gnome3 is so desperate these days, that they are even crawling over to Lennart(pulseaudio), and his systemD'uh. Oh ya, talkin' bout systemD, it's sad that these big distro's don't quite see the advantages of adopting "OpenRC", instead of Lennart's (mostly copied from OpenRC, as well as Solaris 10's "SMF"). systemd - which is basically just a non-portable binary, non-intuitive-invisible-logging, ... blob.
But hey, I guess it's the RedHat way, or the highway, right ?. I mean even Arch, or should I say, the new "LennArch", has also followed redhat, for quite sometime now.
Honestly ppl, you'll be much happier using Slackware, with a nice, light, intuitive Tiling-WM, like "i3", <-
instead of "Gnome3" <-
