I installed Gnome 3 about 5 days ago (used a tiling window manager
before with gnome). So far I like it! Regarding the points mentioned:

If one pushes the activity button there actually is something with the
functionality of a menu you can even easily search all the apps - just
start typing!
At least for me there is some sort of panel on the right which works
exactly as the windows 7 panel same apps are grouped, a new icon for
every app opened, possibility to make them stay even if closed. - No
Idea wether this is the default.
The only things that I miss is the functionality of my tiling wm. but
those were not in gnome 2.3 either.

Regarding your concerns about upgrading - just try the live cd! As a
"power" unixer you should be able to enable 3d in a live cd ;)
