It seems to not fit with the GNOME´s interface goals anymore. I´m not
using GNOME 3 since I´m very happy with KDE 4, but what I´ve seen on
Fedora 15 and openSUSE 11.4 and openSUSE 12.1 doesn´t look like a
desktop but more like a workplace for mobile devices. Maybe that´s the
way to go for GNOME, so applets become useless for them.
Anyway, I´m not GNOME´s official spokesman nor an active member of the

The main problem is that I am less productive because things I knew how to
do for more than a decade, now I don't.
That´s a common problem when a software (or just a tool) breaks with
common paradigms. Either you (re-) learn it, or you run away. As far as

but I´ve just read it on a forum, so I might mix up something here. A
research via Google should give you a more comprehensive answer.
hope this helps,
 or your desired search engine.
