Update on Fedora 15 Development - GNOME 3 Shell Updates

Filed under
Linux
Software

I've been keeping up with Fedora 15 development. I installed a nightly build on my wife's dual-boot computer. I've noticed a few changes that came with some updates yesterday that I wanted to share:

1. Fedora 15 appears to have incorporated all of the upstream GNOME 3 changes. The experience is exactly like that from the GNOME 3 live beta based on OpenSUSE

2. They added a way in the GNOME 3 Shell System Settings to switch back to the GNOME 2 style desktop

3. The GNOME 2 style desktop has been polished up some

4. Fedora has added some additional artwork for non-GNOME desktops

Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
