Yes. GNOME Panel will be available as a fallback for the foreseeable
future even if GNOME Shell is included. That has been the plan from the
start based on the fact that not all drivers/hardware support the
features GNOME Shell needs. GNOME Shell is also different from systemd
in the sense that it affects every single user of Fedora and deserves a
closer scrutiny. FWIW, I think GNOME Shell deserves extensive testing
before made as default as well. FESCo's handling of systemd feature as a
process has gaps that needs to be fixed as well. Nevertheless, I would
like to thank Lennart for his extensive work on getting systemd where it
is now in such a short period and Matthew Miller for playing the role of
a very constructive critic and following up on bugs methodologically.
