I am using ubuntu 11.10 with gnome-shell installed, I often hear people talking about the "pure gnome-shell experience" with regards to Fedora, What does this mean? are there any differences between the two?

They are one and the same exact sofware... –  Uri Herrera Jan 8 '12 at 5:27
So is it simply the fact that gnome-shell is the default in fedora, unity for ubuntu? –  Hailwood Jan 9 '12 at 7:05
Yes that's correct. –  Uri Herrera Jan 9 '12 at 7:28

both are same but i feel it's my personal perspective it may be wrong but the gnome shell in ubuntu is more beautiful than in fedora , The fonts look rather blurred overall, not helped by the low-contrast theme. Then, you also get icons that are rendered with low quality, making the product feel cheap. i love ubuntu and with gnome 3 shell it is the best one
