RE: Cinnamon on Fedora 17

From: Jonathan Calloway 
That's a good question Lynn.  Here's what I am impressed with:


1.      It installed very quickly.  It literally was less than 60 seconds
for me.

2.      I have found the interface simple and intuitive

3.      It definitely makes GNOME easier to use on a Desktop.


Is it deployable (esp. at Uncle Mo's)?  While it is less complex than KDE
and not as unfamiliar to most "Wal-Mart" users as GNOME has become, I still
think it will take a while for people who were raised on Windows to get used

I was just complaining about all the DE FOR Fedora 17 on my Facebook. I was
about to give cinnamon a try tonight. I've been running redhat workstation
on my Mohawk machine for work, but haven't been enjoying the desktop. I
tried kde, and lxde, xfce, and and regular gnome 3. Didn't love any of them.
Randy told me about cinnamon but I haven't tried it yet. 

So, Calloway, does it make gnome 3 easier to use for Multitasking and
general workstation use? Is it in the fedora repos? Would you recommend it
in the the Mohawk envrionment (since you are familiar with what all we have
to do)?
