Your first line is completely undone by your last line:

"Fedora, blows everything again. It's a shame."


So, really, you're slamming Fedora because you don't like Gnome 3.

I suppose "yum install @kde-desktop" was too tough?

Bonus hint: "yum install system-switch-displaymanager"

Slam the DE or slam the distro... if the distro gives you a choice, you can't slam the distro because you don't like the DE.

I get the impression that he has issues with both gnome shell and fedora itself, based on pointing out deficiencies in both. why is he only allowed to call out one or the other in any given thread?

Bollocks.

First of all, the GNOME Shell is now the default DE for Fedora. The default live CD points to a GNOME Shell Live CD. The DVD, as in default installation, installs GNOME Shell as main DE. I am not given a choice, unless I want it to be customized my way. Ok, any monkey can install KDE/XFCE using the DVD install.

Alright, but I've seen the spins and they are... just... horrible. XFCE a sort of Windows 95... and KDE a sort of customized Kubuntu. Even Kubuntu looks better in its defaults. This is not to mention how messy the DE's icons get if you install 3 DE's. Wait, I see in gnome-shell now 3 icons for terminal... Which is the gnome native one? Oh, do I need to remove gnome terminal then?

I could make a huge list of Fedora shortcomings:
- Hundreds of untranslated software descriptions in Anaconda...
- Live CD crashes and GNOME Shell crashes off the Live CD...
- Ugly fonts...

and the list goes on...

The official fedora IRC channel is ruled by four or five moody ops who set quiet on anyone who starts to "disrupt the channel flow" by making suggestions. The only ones in the past that used to be nice were jeremy and mharris and they were actually redhat workers. We didn't have Fedora at that time. Now we have this bunch of god-wanna-be dcr226, DiscordianUK...etc.

So no, I think this is enough...Fedora just blows everything again and again...
