"an overview of which can be found in the release notes and feature list.
The distribution will now use LibreOffice as its office suite – Fedora was
one of the first distributions to make the switch to the OpenOffice.org
alternative back in October last year. The alpha includes a Linux 2.6.38
release candidate as its kernel and uses a pre-release version of GCC 4.6.
Responsibility for booting is taken up by Systemd, an alternative to
SysVinit and Upstart. Systemd was in the running for use in both Fedora 14
and openSUSE 11.4, but was eventually dropped from both.

The most striking change in Lovelock and one which is sure to fuel plenty of
discussion is the switch to GNOME 3, which breaks with many of the concepts
that GNOME users, and computer users in general, have become used to over
many years"
