At Linux.com, Joe Brockmeier reviews GNOME 3.4 running on Fedora 17 alpha:
+
"The Fedora Project has announced the release of the first and only beta version of Fedora 17, the final version of which is due for publication on 22 May. The beta implements all major changes in full, including the 'UsrMove' modification to filesystem structure, which will result in all applications and libraries being stored in subdirectories of /usr/." (The H)
  
"So the big question for GNOME 3.4 is... are we there yet? Different people will define 'there' differently, but I define 'there' as 'a welcome desktop environment for users who liked and used GNOME 2.x.'
+

"I think the answer is yes, but only with a bit of tweaking. If choosing a desktop for myself, I'd probably opt for the Cinnamon fork of GNOME 3.x for now. But I wouldn't be hesitant to put GNOME 3.4 on a desktop for a friend or family member at this point."

"A feature proposal by Lennart Poettering and Kay Sievers to mount the /tmp directory using tmpfs by default in Fedora 18 was recently accepted by the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee (FESCo). This means that the next version of Fedora will store the temporary directory in RAM rather than on a partition on the disk. This makes the system gain some performance and improves the lifetime of solid state drives (SSDs) as it limits writes to the disk."

Review: Beefy Fedora could use a dash of miracle whip

Jason Brooks posted[1]:

"While Fedora 17 is certainly beefy, what's been delivered with this first and only beta is not particularly miraculous.

"Among the more noticeable changes is GNOME 3.4, the latest version of the GNOME 3 desktop. While the Fedora DVD still ships with a variety of desktops, the live CD defaults to GNOME and for some time now Fedora has served as a showcase for the development of GNOME 3."

HealthCheck Fedora: Where's the beef?

Jason Brooks posted[1] a lengthy (2,800 word) take on Fedora and its history from The H:

"To the right kind of user, with imagination and adventure to spare, Fedora is a thing of wonder. And for other users there are Fedora spins which give a different set of perspectives for those with specialised tastes and preferences. The value of Fedora to ordinary users is that it doesn't stand still, and each new release brings new possibilities."
