That's your experience.
My experience with GNOME 3 on SL7.2 is that is vastly have improved
workflow. A lot of it comes through very handy keyboard shortcuts and a
handful of GNOME Shell extensions. In fact I can't imagine any sane
reason to move back to GNOME 2 or anything else - it just feels so
clumsy and horrid to work with for me. Everything just runs very
smoothly and fine on my ThinkPad T450s.
But this is /my/ experience.
