Gnome shell session option

I was browsing reddit today and found that someone wrote a script to give a gnome shell session option:

start with opening terminal and pasting
sudo gedit /usr/share/xsessions/gnome-shell.desktop
This will make you create a new desktop login session.
then paste
[Desktop Entry]
Name=Gnome Shell
Comment=This session logs you into GNOME Shell
Exec=gnome-shell
Icon=
TryExec=gnome-shell
Type=Application
X-GNOME-Provides=panel;windowmanager;
X-GNOME-Autostart-Phase=Panel
X-Ubuntu-Gettext-Domain=gnome-session-2.0
as the body of the document. Click save. Do a Full Reboot. You can now use Gnome Shell anytime you want -- hopefully your wifi will work.
