The only reason why I like gnome 3 in all reality is the fact that it if
you press "Ctrl+Alt+Shift+R" you start screen recording your desktop to
WEBM inside your home directory.  This is pretty much the only thing that
draws me to gnome 3 the rest is almost too innovative for my liking I have
yet to see any Decent YouTube videos with any good explanation as to what
they were thinking.
