haha, that's pretty funny.
I'm sorry that you didn't like GNOME 3. But it got changed because it was very limiting. There is so much more to accomplish. It's what happened when GNOME 1 -> GNOME 2 and people didn't like that either. The flames continued up until it got moved to GNOME 3. Check any slashdot thread.
It'll all get better, hardware continues to change and maybe at some point, you'll come back and try GNOME 3 to check out all the new hardware toys that are coming out. Nothing is forever.
