All I did to make Gnome look better (more like the older style) is.
From clean boot.

Right click on bottom panel?=> Add menu bar.

Remove stupid redhat icon + all of the other lunchers.

Move time to top right corner.

Right click desktop manger and make it one row. Shift it to bottom right corner.

Move application manager (the program tabs) to bottom left corner.

These steps aren't that detailed but the result is pretty good.

I prefer it anyway
