Summary: Fedora 16, thanks in large part to GNOME 3.2, was an awful Linux distribution. With this new version, and GNOME 3.4, Fedora 17 is back to being a useful Linux distribution.
I have been using Fedora
, Red Hat
’s community Linux distribution, since day one back in September 2003 when Red Hat split its commercial Linux, Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL)
. Back then, people hated Red Hat for this move
, but businesses soon learned to love RHEL
and Linux fans grew to love Fedora.
But, then along came GNOME 3.x, Fedora’s default desktop choice, and it all changed.
