Dedoimedo published a review of Fedora 17 Beefy Miracle with Cinnamon desktop, installed from the official respositories, with focus on look & feel, adding new themes and icons, stability, responsiveness, and overall rather excellent integration, with a large gallery of beautiful screenshots.

Fedora 17 Beefy Miracle with Cinnamon desktop Review

he last time I tried to install and run the Cinnamon desktop on top of Fedora, I hit a snag and the review ended with a rather uninspiring screenshot of a failed loading of the desktop. This happened after using an external repository source for the Cinnamon installation.

Since, I've been mailed by lots of people, including the Fedora Community Chief Simian, as his very signature proclaims, and they all told me that Cinnamon is now available in the official repositories and that I should retest with this new source. Which is exactly what I did. I will not keep you in eternal suspense, so I'm going to tell you upfront. It worked this time. But what about my overall satisfaction? Ah, well, you will have to scroll down a bit for that. Fedora + Cinnamon, take two. Action.
