Folks end up using a multitude of devices and OS's these days. Having one smarter than another is not a selling point, instead I would argue ease of transition is. Though I use GNOME 3 regularly its biggest fault is that it's different.

There are two areas I wish GNOME would focus; notifications and multi tasking. The current design that hides notifications is infuriating, I miss countless notifications. And window multi tasking is awkward until you discover tricks like window stacking and sending to back with middle click.

Of all the modern desktops I think Chrome OS does it best. It keeps it traditional and has a heavy focus on the browser for apps.

I'm a developer, give me a browser and a good terminal and I'm happy. The desktop is mattering less and less.
