I can expect that long-time users of GNOME 2 would be reluctant to
migrate to GNOME 3.
It's probably like trying to move between the awesome emacs to the
awesome vim (or the other way round).
There are people who are proficient in one, and they have no clue on
how to use the other.

Some more marketing ideas, having more people stating that they love
GNOME 3 (as Sriram mentions) will help.

For the Linus I would consider that he would probably be better off
with a window manager such as 'awesome', which is ideal for programming and no
I would dare to suggest to take advantage of the comments of Linus,
with a marketing line like
"Can you outperform Linus? Try GNOME 3!"
"GNOME 3: Go where Linus backed off"
"*I* can learn new tricks, GNOME 3"

GNOME 3 - To Hawt for Linus!
