I run F15 x86_64. Because I am using old hardware, it defaults to
fallback mode. I start it with startx after logging in at a console,
so I can't tell you if the greeter still allows language and keyboard
selection, though I know that F14 does. Since the fallback mode is
more like Gnome 2, it might still have the language and keyboard
selection. You can read more about the fallback mode here.

I didn't like the dark look, so I used information from the above site
to change the adwaita theme colors. It is now just CSS, so easy to
change. I tried loading other themes, but that doesn't seem to be
possible yet. I suspect that much of Gnome 3 is a work in progress at
this point, with lots of user friendliness yet to be implemented.
