    Please narrate the title Borat style. Much fun. Now, here's a surprisingly enthusiastic review of Fedora 17 Beefy Miracle with Cinnamon desktop, installed from the official respositories, with focus on look & feel, adding new themes and icons, stability, responsiveness, and overall rather excellent integration, with a large gallery of beautiful screenshots. Dedoimedo liking Fedora? Must be the end of the world.

    Thanks Mrk, you triggered my curiosity, so I installed it, and after following some of the tips from the link below, I'm really liking this distro. Previous trials of it had always ended in disappointed but this one is very stable and polished once the additional repositories are installed, updated, and the packages I've wanted are installed along with plugins and codecs. Very nice :)

    Fedora + cinnamon is the best combination I have used :)

    I tried that combo, too, and can confirm that it's really good. As a matter of fact, Cinnamon under Fedora is more responsive compared to Ubuntu (where you have to install it from a ppa). Nevertheless I will stick with Kubuntu :)
