Ten Gnome 3 features that won me over

Filed under
Software

I went on holiday recently and took the laptop of mine with the best battery life, which happens to be running Fedora 15 and, of course, Gnome 3. I've been in two minds about the controversy over the Gnome 3 and Unity desktops — Ubuntu has opted for Unity as its default. So spending a week with Gnome 3 was going to be an interesting experiment. I was really surprised at the result.

My issues with Fedora relate mostly to a lack of specific packages I have grown used to on Ubuntu. But I wanted my holiday experiment to be about Gnome 3 in particular. After a week, I now believe that with a few tweaks Gnome could be far better than anything else available. Here are some things about this new desktop which won me over.
