Fedora 15: More than just a pretty interface
GNOME emerges from last century
By Scott Gilbertson

The Red Hat–backed Fedora Project has released the latest version of its 
Linux-based operating system, Fedora 15, into the wild.

Despite the similarities of the two leading Linux-based PC operating 
systems, Fedora has long played second fiddle to Ubuntu in the minds of 
many Linux fans. Now – for the first time – there are actually major 
differences between the two distros.

For most users, the debate between the two can be distilled down to 
GNOME 3 versus Unity. But as always, Fedora remains quite a bit 
different under the surface, as well.

With the Unity Shell making waves – and not always good ones – in the 
Ubuntu community, Fedora 15 offers something of a refuge for those 
frustrated with the Unity Shell.

Unfortunately GNOME 3, Fedora's new default desktop, while in much 
better shape than Ubuntu's Unity, is still very different than any 
version of GNOME you've used before.
