Re: Gnome3 and Wheezy.
I have been quite satisfied with Gnome 2 in Squeeze, but as a testing
user i tried the new shiny GNOME 3 for a month when it came out in
unstable/experimental and was quite shocked of the non-usability,
besides the fact i needed proprietary drivers to run it. Then i switched
to XFCE 4.8 and got my usability back. Things worked like they used to,
but i missed the good old Gnome 2 feeling. For me it was a more complete
Desktop. Several months ago i gave MATE a chance and so far i like it
more, although it's not in the official repos
If the project fails, i definitely switch back to the more complete XFCE
4.10 or 4.12.(rendered desktop icons, thunar tabs, revised and updated
mixer, config options etc.)

Forget your issues with GNOME and switch to Xfce4.
I can't recommend this highly enough.
You're not alone in finding GNOME3 less than useful given that it's
a complete trainwreck. XFCE is, in practice, the current desktop of
choice on Debian, even if it's not marked as such in the installer.
