Debian Wheezy.. and yes I use Gnome 3, actually I quite like it once you deck it out with a bunch of necessary extensions (that should be in the core Gnome 3 IMO):

Unlike Metro though, you can at least modify it to behave and do what you want.

I'm running 3.4 on Wheezy. What do you mean by "window controls being integrated with the window title and being huge"?

"Header Bars" -> https://help.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/3.10/

I like to keep either minimal smallest title font possible, and smallest window controls or either no window title and still smallest window controls... With 3.10+ it makes it a pain to do that.

And to make it worse, things are so bleh because not everything supports it. So you have new windows plus the older windows and it just ruins the look and feel so much.

#3: Locally Integrated Menus

If I asked you to list some of the more controversial changes Ubuntu has made over the years there’s a good chance that the decision to punt application menus into the top of the screen would make your cut.

A lot of people are going to be happy with Ubuntu 14.04; the oft-requested option to show application menus in app windows has finally been implemented — albeit not in the way most people would’ve expected.

To maintain the justification for removing them in the first place (i.e., space) the LIM appears embedded in the window title bar, and not, classically, as a separate menu bar beneath it. This may sound like it will get in the way of moving and adjusting windows, but some clever interaction heuristics mean it’s surprisingly swish in use, as the following GIF shows:

This to me is a great change, that I hope more window managers will incorporate...

I think it looks pretty good but it would fall flat on its face if not everything supports it for sure.

I couldn't disagree with that more. I hate designs like that because they're a step backwards for usability

I don't see how.

The menu is still there and always accessible. But now, instead of wasting screen real estate for it's own bar, it's integrated into a bar that's going to be there regardless. It's not any less usable and doesn't make anything else any less usable.

They failed when it came to the Mac global menu style file menu on the panel, that is probably one of my favorite things that Macs have gotten right and working great.

The menu is hidden. So you wont know whether an even application has one - let alone what menu items are available - until you activate it

At the end of the day, what's one persons usability nightmare is often another's design sugar. smile.gif

To be honest I've always found Macs to be counter intuitive to the way I like to interact with a GUI. Which is probably why I warm to KDE so much.
