I installed Debian Wheezy with GNOME on the computer of three colleagues and I
had strictly zero complains on the user interface.  The most negative comment
was from a Mac user, that for cut-and-pasting text in the terminal, pressing
Ctrl-C or Ctrl-V does not give the expected result, but it is an unfair comment
since the same is true on Mac.  It is just that on Mac, cut-and-paste is done
with the ‘command’ key (⌘) instead of Control, and there is no such key on
GNOME.  Also, he quickly figured out by himself that Shift-Control-C/V do what
he wants.

Another colleague installed a Debian Wheezy virtual machine with GNOME by
herself, and spontaneoulsy told me how impressed she was by the user
interface of Debian.

The common point between these colleagues, is that they knew nothing about the
Gnome 2/3 controversy, and were more used to the Mac or Windows interfaces.
