I wonder if Red Hat staff will want GNOME Shell as their leading edge desktop to be deployed in future RHEL 7.


Why not? Gnome Shell will be released as preview on RHEL 7 development so enterprise client will try it out. How is that different from the transition of Gnome 1.x to 2.x?

It's different from the 1.x to 2.x transition in that it's vastly smoother. Ask anyone who actually lived through it. ;-) Remember, back then there wasn't a Fedora for the bleeding edge and a RHEL for the more conservative business types, there was only Red Hat Linux for both worlds.

As for Gnome 3.x being used in baseline RHEL installs... by the time it matters we'll have several more years worth of point releases and refinement in Gnome.

Because GNOME Shell is a toy. Not very practical for their kind of business... well, I sincerely don't want a Red Hat insider that works in favour of GNOME Shell to dictate CEO decisions.
