    So I updated my work desktop from Ubuntu 10.x to 11.10.. it choked on something and was really not happy starting X.. I had another drive in this box so I booted off an older fedora install on that, downloaded f16, burned it to a cd and installed it.

    Loving gnome 3.

    I'm really a red hat / centos / fedora guy... so I did kind of feel /dirty/ using ubuntu on my work pc.

    Anyway, if you're on the fence.. do it.

    BTW, here's a nice cheat-sheet showing some keyboard shortcuts: http://live.gnome.org/GnomeShell/CheatSheet

    Thanks! I didn't know about lg, Alt-`, or Ctrl-Shift-Alt-R! I also had no idea that I didn't need an extension to get the shut down menu. (I think that was a poor choice on the part of the devs though.)

    I'm also a Fedora guy who is loving Gnome Shell as well, though I kinda took a pass on Gnome for Fedora 15.

    My favorite extension is https://github.com/paradoxxxzero/gnome-shell-system-monitor-applet, but I couldn't hang without the rest of my extensions.

    Running Fedora 16

    I am running fedora 16 and i'm confused on how to get the wireless to work on it. I just have been tinkering with linux off and on and I keep going back to ubuntu since the wireless works off the bat any detailed help would be appreciated.

    Perhaps you should start a new thread with more details (what wifi card?).

    Some more information would be nice. Anyhow, Gnome 3.2 is very nice. But there still some weaknesses. Did you check out https://extensions.gnome.org ?

    I might give Fedora 16 a try when I can. I was always curious about Fedora. It sure does look like a really good distro. :)

    Fedora sounds good. I actually trust Gnome 3 more than Unity. The concept for the interface seems better and it seems as if most problems with Gnome 3 aren't about bugs but about the usability of the interface itself, which I will have no problem with, since I'm an extremely adaptable person.

    Definitely gonna give Fedora a shot. Thanks!

    I've never used Fedora, but it looks like a good Operating System to use and I'll probably use it in the future

    I've only very briefly tried any Fedora version and the only thing I really noticed about it was, the look. The look and appearance is brilliant compared to that of other Linux Distributions.
