Last night I downloaded the test candidate for the beta Fedora 15 netinstall CD. I ran the install overnight, and ran Fedora 15’s implementation of the new GNOME 3.0 desktop environment through its paces this morning.
This is a video I made near the end of the morning. The goal was to give a brief overview of the primary functions of the GNOME 3 environment, from launching applications and managing workspaces and favorite applications, to shutting down your computer.
Back when I was running GNOME 2 (notice the past tense!), I wasn’t sure that there was an better, faster way to get things done with a computer. Open source software continually amazes, and just when you start thinking that things can’t get any better, any faster, or any more efficient than they already are…they do! GNOME 3 is certainly not an exception to the rule, and I hope you’ll consider enjoying its benefits as your own needs for technology suggest appropriate.
