gnome-tweak-tool gets a fantastic new Font Selector window

Here is the quick look at how the Font Selector looks like now. And its not just for the gnome-tweak-tool, its for all the places for font selection. I really loved it. So intuitive to use and amazingly good to look. This is what a good design and thinking can do. Kudos to Gnome team for coming up with this.

Fedora 16 screenshot with conky and bmpaenl2

For all those who used to keep complaining about the bottom panel of Gnome which used to show a list of windows, you can get it back with bmpanel2 (there are lot of other options too, but this one is light.). You can have themes for the panel also.

And the best part about using gnome-shell is that I always getting a feeling that I now have more space on the Desktop. And, thus conky looks good too on the Desktop. Here’s a screenshot.
