        For some reason, Fedora insists on using gnome3 by default, which is a horrible wm in my opinion, shared by many others and thus the need to have lots and lots of different "spins" to get around gnome3.

        I'll give Deepin a try. So far I've been using cinnamon, which is beautiful but rather buggy and they don't seem to have much development going on.

          Gnome 3 is not a Window Manager.

            doesnt surprise me that Yum3 wont be Dead till F31. i didnt think Fedora or the Koji devs would be able to do it in time for F30 . even Cinnamon needs Part of Gnome, Cinnamon is just a Shell like Gnome-shell is. but yes Cinnamon is Buggy , last i used it was anyway.

                What worries me even more, is the assimilation of RedHat by IBM. Considering IBM's past with software, I am afraid that Fedora won't be something that goes along with IBM's rigid corporate structure.

                IBM always had top software, like IBM OS/2, domino server and Lotus notes (etc), but failed to actually evolve them along with current technologies. Lets hope they don't destroy the Fedora eco-system...

                  IBM is one of the most successful IT companies out there. Either they keep supporting Fedora if they believe it can successfully contribute to their services in the long-term, or it will be killed. One thing is sure, they won't burn their cash for any ideological war regarding opensource, free software and whatnot. They will just get rid of dead horses. If Fedora proves to be functional to their business then not only it won't be killed, but it will get even better. Let's just hope for the best and that the community is large enough to be able to fork the project in the worst case.

                    Also, IBM will likely want RHEL and it's related technologies to grow (why else acquire Red Hat?), which means Fedora is here to stay.

                    I expect probably more investment in GNOME (I wonder where that $1m donation came from), Fedora Silverblue and it's associated "cloud" stuff.
