As with every change, there's a lot of confusion and sometimes wrong
press about it (after reading some comments on articles in online tech
magazines on GNOME 3).
Beside wrong stuff like "They will remove nautilus and force us to use
zeitgeist/journal" and the classic "Please don't repeat KDE 4.0" I've
also seen a lot of "We cannot use gnome-panel and metacity anymore, and
gnome-shell needs powerful hardware that I don't have" comments.

It cannot hurt at all to clarify things here by communicating better and
more often what GNOME 3 means and especially what it won't force users
to do to reduce FUD.
