Has been that way from FC5 onwards. The dialog box still exists. Alt+F2.

That's intuitive, not.  Rather, it's functionality obfuscation.  Even
Windows shows a "Run" option on the program menu.  If grandparents
running Windows can handle it, why not Gnome users?  Is there some
rationale?  I imagine this is some upstream decision.
