So, a new release of Fedora was set free just last week, the so-called “Beefy Miracle”. A couple of releases ago (or maybe last release), I had really thought I might wait at least a month after a release before upgrading. Turns out my curiosity got the best of me, and I went and upgraded my laptop mere days after the release. Fortunately, this release has been much much better right out of the box.
Over the past few weekends I’ve been trying out GNOME3 via the Fedora 15 Beta. I’ve already read many a blog post in opposition to various things, so I was not overly surprised when I tried it out. Fortunately, I have a pretty boring setup because I only tested on my desktop, meaning I didn’t have to worry about external monitors or suspending. In fact, with respect to working with the whole thing, it wasn’t a terrible experience.
