You could move it to the bottom

I too had never used virtual desktops before, but here now they make sense to me without the 3D cube in the way. I never did care much for the cube. Looks great in screenshots, but was never practical to me. Having to press two keys and a mouse to move it was crazy. I much prefer the way it's set up in Gnome 3. A quick *swish* of the mouse and it's all there. I love the new desktop recording tool too. Brilliant that they put that in as a default plaything in Gnome 3.
It's inevitable there'll be a load of complaints at first, but I suspect that once it's had time to settle, people will begin to see how great it really is.
Kudos to Opensuse too for a brilliant implementation of it so quickly too. Not had any real issues with it at all, which is a real testament to the devs there, and it was a doddle to install. Magic.
