There is much more!

deviantArt contains an unlimited number of Themes and variations for Gnome Shell. There is always a way to make “Gnome 3 is About Choice” for real, no matter if the developers directly support customization, or not.

Many of the above themes come with Pinguy OS which is a Distro based on Ubuntu (12.04 on the latest release) and features Gnome Shell 3.4 with some Extensions and a Docky.

How about showing us your desktop?

We thought about doing our own “Show your Desktop Friday” here on woGue so go ahead and send us a screenshot of your desktop with a quick description of what you are using (distribution, Gnome Shell version, extensions, GTK and GS themes, Icon set etc). If we get enough contributions, we will do this every Friday and we may evolve it into a competition where you will be voting for the best!

  We can't watch comments unless G+ provides an API or if you send a notification, e.g +World Of Gnome

    So why won’t Gnome developers let me change my theme? My fonts? My icons? Why?

    • alex285

      I guess you know the reasons and I am sure that you know how to change your theme :) Also you know that I am going to make a one click installation Theme Site, similar to Extensions, so basically Gnome Devs don’t bother anyone with their choices at this field :)

      Community (Gnome enthusiasts) can make a better Gnome. No need to ask Gnome Devs to do everything, half people here are programmers :)
