That might tell you something right there.

GNOME 3.0 might be awesomesauce for new users, but it doesn't seem to
be striking a chord with existing GNOME users. So, what seems to be
happening here is trading an established user base for a potential
user base - with very little muscle to reach the potential user base.

I agree with you Joe, and find your post helpful.

It is a fact that a large number of ppl are missing the old user experience from GNOME 2. That should not just be noticed, but seen as a chance.

One way to go could be to further improve the now called Fallback mode (which is planned for 3.2 and +). Another option could be to rename Fallback to Classic. This would also not imply that it may be removed somewhen a fallback is no longer necessary.

So why not just address both userbases? We are not far away from that.
