Fedora Core "Linux fans hope that the interface changes in Windows 8 will drive more users to Linux. But the open source operating system is facing interface challenges of its own. Part of the problem is that - after so much controversy within the Linux community - there are so many interfaces to chose from. But the new version of Fedora - a desktop focused version of Red Hat’s distribution of Linux - is offering users an easier way to choose between the many flavors of Linux GUI."

RHEL 7

With RHEL 6 series, we have good old GNOME 2 stable enough, with the ability to run compiz quite without any issues.

I was trying F18 and I can tell it for sure that everything that is going on right now is going to cause a huge impact on Red Hat. Not that you actually need a GUI to run RHEL, but the new installer is a complete mess and they seem to have no clue or leadership capable of taking ONE right direction, such as develop a fork of GNOME 3 to mimic exactly all the goodies of GNOME 2. Eveything in Fedora feels messy, like a siamese twins each one going in different directions.

Canonical paid the price doing some real stupid decisions about Unity, but they had the balls to stick to their own interface-plugin, more like the corporative decision - it can be good or bad, depending on the choice of the leader. But with Fedora is weird, is too much democracy for my taste.

You know by now (from http://stats.wikimedia.org/archive/squid_reports/ ) that Ubuntu might even be the most healthy non-Android Linux...
