    High time, IMO. Gnome 3 is usable at this point, but the experience it offers is inferior to Gnome 2 in every way other than eyecandy. Whereas Mate (which I'm using right now, though not on Fedora) offers an interface that does what you tell it to, doesn't surprise you, and doesn't treat you like an idiot.

    With luck, the adoption of Mate into the repos of a major distro will help it cache on, and bring a little sanity back to the Linux desktop.
