Linux shakedown: Testing both GNOME 3 and Fedora 15

Filed under
Linux
Software

The good folks at the Fedora Project decided to do something very intelligent - they released a candidate of Fedora 15 along with what will be the new default desktop - GNOME 3 for testing purposes. I decided to download the special GNOME 3 test ISO image and shake it down to see what happens. I have to say, I was fairly surprised at what greeted me. Not only had GNOME 3 undergone some changes since I last used it, but the release, as a whole, was in very good shape for such an early candidate.

Let’s take a look and see what it has to offer.

What’s special

As this is an alpha release, going through the litany of included software will only result in frustration as many of these will have changed by the time the official release is out. But for those of you who are curious:

* GNOME 3 - the obvious, most startling change.
* Firefox 4
* Kernel 2.6.38-0
