I have MATE running on F18 - and it has a ways to go with
~/.gnome2 as opposed to ~/.gnome(3) user settings. MATE
fails to save workspace settings, fails menu "reorganizations",
uses caja/nautilus inconsistently, semi-fails XDMCP (Cannot
log in remotely-unable to enter password), 'motion' does
not work well on httpd+web browser and so on. There is more
HD bloat (gnome2+gnome3) and it is a performance hog so
a speedy MOBO/CPU/RAM is needed. The look and feel is pretty
good, but it can get ugly sometimes.

I hope MATE & applications catches up to what it was before gnome-3.
