Fedora 17 & GNOME 3.4: Return to a useful Linux desktop

In a brief ZDNet review, Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols offers faint praise for Fedora 17:

"GNOME 3.2, which was Fedora 16’s desktop, was dreadful. You don’t have to trust me on that though, just ask Linus Torvalds, Linux’s founder. He hated GNOME 3.2.

"That was then. This is now. Fedora 17, with the ungainly name Beefy Miracle-no I’m not making that up, that really is its name-is now in late beta and it’s much better than it was."

Fedora 17 won't be released until 29 May

"The Fedora Project has pushed back the release of the Fedora 17 Linux distribution by a week, from 22 May to 29 May. The main reason is that the project wants to take care of four bugs classified as blockers in the current release candidates; if possible, the developers will also use the extra time to fix a dozen other problems."
