so does anyone else like gnome shell? i would love to see a very similar if not rip off in osx one day

Gnome has nothing to do with WINE or CrossOver. They are completely separate projects.

google gnome shell. i realise the way it works is no different to gnome currently but its so much nicer then unity and really is nice to use.
fedora use gnome shell too

Also for anyone who doesn't know about it check out the gnomeshellextensions web page - makes customising it so much easier.|
Also there's an OS X style theme on gnomelooks which spices it up a bit

just intalled gnome-3 on my free-bsd build(had to manually compile it) works nice though.
it seems that some distros are taking time to build packages for new gui's..bsd is one of those..

I just had to log back in (been a while) to say that I love Gnome-shell 3.10 and all the new core apps , I prefer to use a few extentions to make it more usefull such as and I recomend dash to dock, because I would rather have a dock that sits on my desktop and only needs one click to get to it.
ps. for docky and plank fans.
I have worked out a way to make the dash launch from docky / plank and this seems to be a lot like launch pad, it uses the super key bound to a .desktop file. I dont use this method anymore as I am used to Gnome Shell 3.10, but it might make OsX fans a bit happier.

I love gnome! For the every day user and office use, gnome is very efficient and if you have the right hardware it flies!

^ the right hardware hmmm... not really
personally i think gnome 3 is visually stunning , but the amount of resources it use up are quite a lot compared to other DE ( something like XFCE , LXDE, or the good ol' gnome 2 ) , not to mention the amount of dependencies it needs, and the amount of time it takes to be compiled if by chance you are using a source-based linux distribution like i do.
but who am i to judge, it's a matter of taste anyway.
as a power user i prefer some dynamic lightweight window manager like awesome or bspwm. Both are certainly customizable , keyboard-driven , dual monitor friendly , and certainly a lot lighter than gnome, good news is awesome can be used in conjuntion to gnome shell as well)
