To get the network running to my satisfaction I had to start nm-connection-editor from a shell. Once I set up a proper IP and DNS addresses, things were rocking right along with regards to the network. I did see where they've change the network device names. I was a bit puzzled at first, but it didn't get in the way of configuring a working network connection. A rose by any other name... as the Bard once wrote. I couldn't care less what you call your various device names, as long as it Just Works. Call em' Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice for all I care...
My biggest gripe is a long-standing one with Fedora and certain other distributions: the network proxy. I get very tired of having to configure the network proxy for both the system as well as for Firefox. It needs to be set in one location, and all other applications pick it up from there. This business of having to set it in multiple places has gone well past the 'tired' stage.
Minor nits aside, it's your bog-standard Linux distribution. I might keep this around for a few weeks and follow the various forums and blogs. If there's a way to update/enable to Gnome 3, I might try that. But for the time being I'll just let it sit on the SAN until it either proves useful or I delete it to recover the disk space.
