    I've written a review of Fedora 16 Verne with the KDE4 desktop, covering live session, installation and post-install use, including Wireless, Samba sharing, look & feel, dual-boot configuration with Windows 8, new use of GRUB2 in Fedora, Fedora Utils for getting proprietary codecs, multimedia playback - MP3, Flash, applications choice and integration, package management, desktop effects, system stability with no kernel or application crashes or SELinux alerts, suspend & resume, resource usage, some problems like printing, no screensaver, desktop freezes, funny downloads, quirky messages and behavior, comic strip widget loading failure, other small issues, and more. This should nicely complement the other review with the Gnome 3 desktop from a few weeks back. Enjoy.

    I too have been playing with fedora 16 kde and it's very good. That's probably due to kde more so than the fedora base. My old desktop chugs a bit but on newer hardware this will perfrom very well I would imagine.

    If one grabs the infinality fonts and fedora-utils you can have a beautiful, functional os. Just prey the fedora updates don't break something.
