Dedoimedo published a review of Fedora 18 Spherical Cow with the Cinnamon desktop environment, focusing on installation, importing old settings, look & feel, customization, multimedia integration, desktop effects, printing, problems like multiple applications for the same function, inconsistent visual effects, styling and behavior, and more.

Fedora 18 + Cinnamon - Not bad, more polish needed

A week back, we discussed Fedora 18 Spherical Cow with the MATE desktop environment. Overall, it worked well, but it did lack the wow effect, and certain improvements were needed in the visual polish space, as well as the application set. Mind, this was the first time we saw MATE on top of Fedora, so goblins came and pushed splinters under your fingernails.

This week, we will discuss Cinnamon. The more astute among you will surely recall my amazement at how well Fedora 17 performed when blessed with this desktop. The Beefy Miracle became a miracle and earned itself a spot in the top five charts for 2012. Well, it's time to see if the magic can be achieved once again, with Spherical Cow as the scapegoat. Oh so many animal references, it's almost animal farm.
