About GNOME Shell

GNOME Shell provides core user interface functions for the GNOME 3
desktop, like switching to windows and launching applications. GNOME
Shell takes advantage of the capabilities of modern graphics hardware

changing project, it will be much easier than get GNOME Shell and its
dependencies to build from tarballs.
