After I installed Gnome 3, restarted, and logged back in with "Gnome" as the chosen interface. My desktop looks like this. Any solution?
From the screenshot, I see you are running Ubuntu in VMWare Player (on Windows).
What's probably happening is that Gnome isn't detecting 3D acceleration/support and is falling back to Gnome 2D (which looks exactly like your screenshot).
VMWare Player does have rudimentary 3D support, but it needs to be enabled from the settings first; see the below screenshot:
If you can't find that option in the settings, add this line to the .vmx file:
mks.enable3D = "TRUE"
Then restart VMWare player, boot Ubuntu, select Gnome and hopefully you'll get Gnome-Shell (3D).
