From Ubuntu to Fedora (the good, the bad and the ugly)

During the past weeks I noticed how difficult it was to hack on a desktop environment that I am not using myself. And since most of my work now is about GNOME (and KDE) I came to the conclusion I have to use bleeding edge GNOME 3. Sadly Ubuntu 11.04 with GNOME 3 is pretty shaky for my taste.

I installed Fedora 15, replacing my Ubuntu installation after 6 and a half years.

Bleeding Edge GNOME 3

If you want to run the latest GNOME hassle free out of the box then Fedora is the one stop shop for that. No adding repos or anything. I am not comparing Unity and GNOME 3. I like both but still my GNOME/Elementary desktop kinda did everything I needed and kicked ass. Except for some artwork you are experiencing unmodified GNOME 3.
