As I've found Gnome 3 unusable I've switch to Xfce which is much better than Gnome 3 but not perfect:
Freezes frequently if save session is active. This problem was solved by switching off save session feature.
Changes workspace layout from time to time. Most of time it displays variant #1 of the Desktop but sometimes the desktop switches to variant #2. Have no idea why. Unsolved.

I've been using Linux as my desktop operating system for about 12 years. I have started with Red Hat 4.0 (or 5.0) in 1989 or 1990 and since then I've stuck with Red Hat/Fedora. Actually I have never used MS Windows except version 95 (for starting DOS box) or when forced to do so. Looking back at all the Fedoras/RedHats I have used I am disappointed. Bugs were in every distributions, but with the help of Google I was able to cope with them. For the first time I cannot...
