    Phoronix: Fedora 15 Lovelock Has Been Released

    Fedora 15 has just been released! Fedora 15 is the first major Linux distribution shipping with the GNOME 3.0 Shell by default, and as usual, has a host of other Linux innovations...

    Now I realise that some people just like to complain, and don't bother to look for solutions, but there are plenty of very easy to install extensions to do lots of "GNOME 2" things in GS.

    Everyone complaining about how "bad" GNOME Shell is, should have a read through this blog

    http://blog.fpmurphy.com

    I recommend you look through and try fpmurphy's extensions.

    Personally, I've got the theme selector and Zukitwo theme, noa11y, poweroptions, and the applicationsbutton extensions. Along with "official" auto-window-mover extension.

    You can use gnome-tweak-tool to change the fonts, and a few other things. But extensions are really where the cool things in GS will happen.

    Sorry, but I tried both - Shell and Unity and Unity was much more comfortable for me, so I don't have to make any studies to say this.

    It was enough to type "unity usability" in Google:

    I've been trying to find a UI that works equally well for touch screen as well as "traditional" input. I've been trying Ubuntu's Unity (too restrictive), Xfce+Compiz (not designed for such use -> real fast, but too buggy), KDE4 (very "touch-unfriendly") and finally landed at Gnome shell that actually did most of what I needed - you hit the tablet (or keyboard) "Windows" button and you get the realtime task manager, you pull running app windows from there to the side and they are automatically moved to additional virtual desktops as needed.

    Very touch-friendly already at this early stage. Thankfully, as already mentioned, there is some tweaking possible, but there's still a long way to go to reach previous gconf-editor bliss

    Unfortunately Linux drivers don't support multitouch for my screen so my experience is restricted to single touch :/ Still, I think touch input is the future, so gnome shell looks like a step in the right direction.

    Yep people are going to beat the crap out of the gnome team.
    Linux is going to be stuck on 10/08, fedora 14 and the various mint's etc etc.
    They just lost the game.
    It was going to well. Someone had to jump up and throw a monkey wrench in it. You can't have free software threatening 150 billion market cap crapple.

I took a look at gnome.org about gnome shell usability and I didn't find anything than: we did the change, because it will improve usability and end user experience etc. This is bullshit and there are no real explanation why they did what they did. I consider Unity is great right now and will be much better in the future. I'd love to see Gnome throwing shell away in the name of Unity. Fedora (so systemd, btrfs, spice and other features)+Unity+the rest of Gnome3 will be a great distribution (much better than Ubuntu imho). If there's still hope Gnome3 will become Linux only and someone fill fix the damn shell it will be also great. There are dozens of features in Linux which can give Gnome quite big advantage.

    This Fedora release is great. I'm using KDE spin of course. Messed up Kubuntu can go home.

    KDE wasn't ready for production yet. It was aimed at end users with 4.2 release. :P
