Fedora 15 beta released as GNOME 3 backlash grows
By Eric Brown

The Fedora Project announced the beta release of Fedora 15 "Lovelock," 
featuring the new GNOME 3 desktop 
<http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS9840525790.html#>, the Systemd 
initialization system, and a new dynamic firewall feature. Meanwhile, 
GNOME 3 has received mixed reviews, with many claiming the project went 
too far in simplifying the interface.

The new beta version of Fedora 15 follows an alpha that _arrived in 
early March_ <http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS5489739858.html>. The 
final is expected in late May. Sponsored by Red Hat, the community-based 
Fedora is aligned with the commercial _Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)_ 
<http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS7398376058.html> release, with 
Fedora largely used as an upstream, exploratory sandbox for Red Hat.
