Okay, I downloaded Fedora 15..but not to review Fedora Linux..but to review Gnome 3. There are several things to like about it, such as the simplicity and ease of navigation..and it shore is purty. But, I don’t like it. I use Linux for one main reason. It looks and does EXACTLY what I want it to do, not what some corporate entity wants it to. The feature set is exactly what Gnome needs. The taking away of customization is a horrible step in the (Windows) wrong direction. I get the need to revamp, and appeal to newbies, primarily refugees from Windoze..Clean it up, Team Gnome then I will be back to revisit this.
Get things done with ease, comfort and control.
GNOME 3 takes elegance to a new level. Every part has been carefully crafted to give it a harmonious, beautiful, look and to make it simple and easy-to-use.
An overview at a glance
The Activities Overview is the portal to all your computing activities. Quickly accessible using the top-left hot corner or windows key, it provides a single place to access windows, applications and even messages. The dash allows you to see which applications are currently running and the workspace switcher can be used to group windows.
GNOME 3 incorporates a unique, built-in messaging system. Messages can be directly responded to from notification popups, and you can access your previous communications from the Messaging Tray which is always available from the bottom of the screen. This means that holding a conversation does not require repeated window switching.
