For my desktop I am less into look and more into functions. Gnome3
comes are some nice ideas with good usability.

It sure is elegant. If only it would be less patronizing. 
Lots of formerly already few available config options are simply 
gone. Many others are better hidden than ever before. E.g. there 
is no GUI way to configure the backdrop of gdm any more. The top
panel is not configurable at all. More panels need some trickery
to spawn in the first place. There is no power off item in the 
panel menu, only log-out...
