Default FC15 Upgrade Gnome Issue Dell Inspiron

I burned the DVD version of the distro so I could update an old dell
Inspiron 600M laptop from FC13. It seemed to go well until I rebooted
then a message flashed by saying something about Gnome3 and
comparability with older displays. I get a Gnome desktop but its not
working quite right. I'm getting ready to look at it again after taking
a break but I just wanted to ping the list to see if there is maybe
something obvious I can do or if my problem is familiar to anyone.


TIA - Tod

Gnome and hence Fedora 15 have eliminated Gnome-2. You must now
choose one of the alternate shells.

KDE - modern, configurable, generally works well.

LXDE / XFCE - lightweight similar to gnome 2 / configurable

Gnome Shell - a tablet/phone like window system - won't run without
decent 3D support - if 3D graphics not available it drops down to
simpler interface. For some reason its the default DE on F15 even if not
on a tablet PC.

Choose one - go with whatever suits your taste - Gnome 2 has been
retired so its no longer an option.

Have fun!

Gnome Shell is the default WM for Gnome 3, and Fedora is Gnome-centric.
This being so, what other DE would you expect to be the default?
