Gnome Shell mockup

Do you remember the above mockup? It was presented this year at GUADEC along with some other mockups we posted HERE. Well, Florian Müllner is making that a reality - here is a real screenshot of his work:

Gnome Shell

I don't know about you, but I for one am really glad we'll finally have some sort of window list (dock, launcher or whatever is called) in Gnome Shell, although the above screenshot looks like the Activities view - hopefully the window list will be displayed in any view, not just here. What do you think?

In other Gnome Shell news, the testing PPA maintained by Ricotz no longer provides Gnome Shell packages so it looks like it's now harder then ever to try out Gnome Shell in Ubuntu, especially since now it depends on GTK3).
