Benefit to Fedora

This spin is insofar beneficial for Fedora itself, as it helps the Design Team by fitting its needs through selecting often used applications and including them on one spin. Additionally, it helps new users interested in design matters to join Fedora, since they'll be able to download the spin and start directly using the applications - without being required to look into the load of available packages. In a way, it fosters the design community inside Fedora.

Nightly Builds

Nightly builds of the latest .ks file can be found at nightly compose website in either 32-bits (known as i686 architecture) or 64-bits (as x86_64).
