"The GNOME Shell for version 3.2 is not radically different, but still
nicer than early versions of Ubuntu's Unity desktop (granted, Unity in
Ubuntu 11.10 is also becoming more friendly and polished). Fortunately,
Fedora is always shipping with the latest open-source graphics drivers
and other core components, so the GNOME Shell should work relatively
well on Radeon / Nouveau / Intel"
