GNOME-3 leader for desktop Linux?

"Fedora 15 has slipped into its new GNOME 3 dress with aplomb. If you
don't like GNOME 3 that's one thing, but it's hard to fault Fedora's
integration of it.

GNOME 3 may be the biggest news in this beta, but Fedora 15 does manages
to slip in another major change. Fedora 15 now uses systemd as the
default system and session manager. Systemd was in Fedora 14, but not
enabled by default. The result of the completed transition will be
faster boot and shutdown times, especially on SSDs."

"While Fedora 15 is definitely still a beta and not recommended for
everyday use, it's leaps and bounds beyond Ubuntu's first beta release.
If you want to test out GNOME 3, the Fedora 15 beta makes an excellent
way to use it"
