I don't like it that much either, even if, to be fair, I tried it only a little.
My biggest concern is "why a simple and working concept like a desktop, that proved to be nice, simple, efficient and easy to understand should ever be revolutionized?".
So I think that with an high probability, I will be switching desktop environment.
I will give Gnome3 a chance before doing this, if it will really be better, I will happily stay with it. If it will not, this is my fallback order
XFCE->KDE4->LXDE-> whatever else...
