A very positive article about both GNOME 3.0 and Fedora 15
Because this release was so focused on GNOME 3, it was hard to even
really notice Fedora 15 in the background. That says a lot about where
Fedora is heading. The OS, underlying the desktop, was about as solid an
alpha release as I have ever laid fingers on. And running from the live
CD was incredible--if someone were to sit at this computer (the very PC
I am writing this article on) and begin using the desktop, they would
never know they were using a Live CD.
*Give it a go*
I realize that many of you look down on Fedora for one reason or
another. But this testing release should not go unnoticed by the IT
public. The GNOME 3 testing release of Fedora 15 is crucial to the
growth of both Fedora and GNOME. This release will go a very long way in
the testing of what will soon become the default desktop for many Linux
distributions (for a very long time). So please, do your fellow Linux
community members a favor...test this release and submit bug reports.
Your help will be much appreciated and long remembered."
