Well as those who've read my posts here over the years know, I'm the 
farthest thing from an expert on this list.  I installed Linux Mint 12 
on my laptop and found GNOME 3 confusing.  So I watched some Youtube 
videos on it, then played around some more and decided I don't 
understand why I would want it.  I hate it.

So I (like Linus Torvalds) have gone over to XFCE.  But I've gone with 
Xubuntu.  Xubuntu allows you to log in either to the more primitive pure 
XFCE or the polished Xubuntu session.

I love Xubuntu.  It's quite similar to the polished GNOME 2 on Ubuntu.
