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.
