If you believe that you are not yet ready for Gnome 3 or if your hardware can’t handle the heavy desktop environments then you can always enjoy Fedora 15 Lovelock with your old hardware using light desktop shells like LXDE or XFCE.

LXDE (Light X Desktop Environment)

You can install it on Fedora 15 system by running the following commands

su -
yum install @lxde-desktop

After installation, log out and while logging in, choose LXDE from the login session drop down menu. The default installation would look like the one shown below

Xfce

You can install Xfce in Fedora by using following commands

su -
yum groupinstall xfce

The default screen looks like the one shown below,

It is difficult to tell which of the two (LXDE vs Xfce 4) is better. It is a personal thing, so I would recommend you to give them both a try and see which one suits your need better.
