Fedora 22 walk through: The first major Linux distro with GNOME 3.16

Welcome to Fedora 22

Fedora 22 is the first Linux distribution to ship with version 4.0 of the Linux kernel and GNOME 3.16, which adds a variety of improvements and vastly better HiDPI support. This is the second release of Fedora following the project's realignment to produce Workstation, Server, and Cloud builds, which are specifically tailored to each use case.

The installation manager for Fedora starts with the keyboard settings selection. US English is correctly detected.
