    Good job, Fedora developers.

    But Michael, your latest articles make it look like you were really tired back then Sentences starting without capital letters, random links...

      Great GNOME integration

      The GNOME integration on Ubuntu 13.04 was so bad that I switched to Fedora 19 alpha... It has been running smoothly ever since! I just recommand it!

        Yep, Fedora 19 is really great. I'm so happy I switched to Fedora when it was at 17, never want to go back :-D.

        To everyone at Fedora: Thanks! You are great :-).

        And Gnome Shell is shaping up really great, except gpk-application. That's the sole thing they really could make better.
        It just stalls to much "waiting in queue" without any apparent reason, that's a bit frustating.
        And the search function could be improved. Currently you need to know the name of a package, otherwise you won't find it.

        Though I expect this is going to be better with the hawkeye/libresolv stuff.

        But yeah, Fedora is really cool, and everyone should try it out :-)

          I definitely agree with you. Must be quite hard to keep up with all Canonical decisions and with limited manpower. I'm sure they are doing their best.

            Definitely the biggest setback when you come from Ubuntu like me. I wonder when "Software" replacement will be ready, I like the designs they are providing.

              It is coming to Gnome, but Im not sure about Fedora.

              Richard Hughes who is developing it is a Fedora developer who wrote PackageKit, GNOME Power manager etc and it will be integrated into Fedora as soon as it is ready.

                Sounds good, can't wait for it.
                I already love the designs. :-)

                  GNOME UI will be a frontend to distro package management tools with some additional functionality to manage other type of components such as application bundles in a sandbox. An intermediate layer like the PackageKit API can abstract out the distro specific implementation details. Fedora will continue to use yum for native package management.

                    Hasn't the main Ubuntu GNOME packager quit for “real life” reasons?
                    Anyway: I’ve said it about Kubuntu and I say it about Ubuntu GNOME. The attachment to the Ubuntu base OS is completely irrational.
                    Fedora and openSUSE are both fine options for GNOME fans.

                    If one finds Fedora not easy enough to use, there is also Korora’s Fedora remix that was also updated to version 19 today: https://kororaproject.org/korora-19-bruce-released/

                    DNF will become YUM.
