Adam, versions numbers mean bubkus as nobody stipulates what a version represents. After all, this is the 18th version of Fedora.

Honestly, it is pretty decent for simple everyday usage.
The issues with the installer were well noted in the release notes, so I will not go into my thoughts other than to say I think it is a half-step backwards overall. I can see the potential for future improvements.
My plan is to wait for KDE 4.10 to become full release and give KDE a try once again to see how much overall improvement have accrued.
Perhaps one of these days I will get off my ... lazy... and install Arch. That being said, Fedora is still my overall favorite.
This is BEYOND FUCKING STUPID!!!

YES it is TRUE the gnome developers have LOST THEIR MINDS
HOLY FUCK even WINDOWS 8 lets you log out without resorting to editing the registry.
Yes indeed sir here is your new automobile, you need to put it up on a lift and remove the oil pan if you want to change radio stations.
Features those can return through extensions, Nautitus-terminal is one of them. Want extra, write yourself if you are skilled enough:

No doubt the user understands and appreciates the difference between a control that's hidden and a control that's not there.

It's nice to know that phoronix forums is the official place to look if you need gnome assistance. No doubt my wife will know to look here when she has problems.

Maybe you should put up a web page with instructions on how to get your connectivity working and put a link to it on the desktop. Users can click on it if they want to figure out how to connect to the internet. Do it! It would be TOTALLY consistent with your brain death.
You think you can throw 30 years of user interface research into the dumpster and create your own? The new gnome has all the sophistication of a geocities web page filled with blink tags.
AND BLOODY FUCKING HELL! You think you are making things EASIER for people by providing a configuration editor? Yes indeed give 'em an interface where one false keystroke means you have totally botched your gnome setup. THE ROOF IS ON FIRE!

hey gnome developers
My employer's preferred server platform is RHEL and we send a LOT of customers to RedHat for their OS requirements.
We could JUST AS EASILY send them to IBM to buy AIX if we feel that RHEL is not serving our needs.
So PAY FUCKING ATTENTION! WE are the people who are paying your salaries and WE can send our money elsewhere if we want. You MUST provide an operating system that we can recommend to our customers or else you will be SOL.
If you KEEP IT up with the stupid antics and treating your users like experimental animals then you will be UNEMPLOYED.
Wow, such hate on here. Look, if you're really going to get pissy, don't blame the people at Red Hat. Blame the people at GNOME. My install of Fedora 18 KDE is working great. It's mainly the GNOME version that is having issues. Unlike GNOME, KDE doesn't generally remove or hide features either.
