My main problem is the lack of task bar: - I need to see what windows I have open, it gives me context - Without a taskbar, I'm not able to switch windows quickly

I like the visual context too, some of the dock extensions did a fine job last time I played with it.

The problem with relying extensions is that the Gnome team don't care about or even particularly like third party extensions and have no qualms about breaking them every update.

I think that this is more to do with just the fact that it's so new and immature that it's going to take a while for things to settle down... I expect that the interfaces the extensions depend on should stabilise fairly soon.
