RHEL 7 is shipping GNOME Shell in Classic Mode

Filed under
Software

RHEL 7 the upcoming enterprise Linux of Red Hat is scheduled for the second half of 2013. Around half year ago Red Hat made known that they were going to ship GNOME 3 for their desktop, so it was easy to guess that they were going to use version 3.8 since that was going to be the latest GNOME version at the time for RHEL 7 Beta.

According to Denise Dumas, director of software engineering at Red Hat, RHEL 7 is going to use a tweaked version of Shell Classic. We think that people who are accustomed to Gnome 2 will use classic mode until they’re ready to experiment with modern mode.
