Detailed Description

The Cinnamon spin pairs Fedora with the Cinnamon Desktop. Cinnamon is a modern, GTK-based desktop that retains the look and feel of the classic Gnome desktop while also allowing for an extensible and highly customizable desktop.

Benefit to Fedora

Cinnamon gives Fedora users another option for an out-of-the-box desktop environment other than Gnome. It provides a Fedora-based alternative to other distributions such as Linux Mint that use Cinnamon as the default desktop. Cinnamon spin also includes some packages that the base Live CD does not include, such as LibreOffice and Gimp. This gives the user a more complete desktop experience with less initial configuration and installation of additional packages required.

Cinnamon  - modern and customizable desktop environment.  

Spin description

Cinnamon desktop is a more traditional desktop than Gnome Shell. It is GTK=based but retains the panel and traditional menus most Linux users are used to. Most applications that will run in Gnome Shell will look similar in Cinnamon. Cinnamon also provides graphical configuration tools where Gnome Shell does not, and has a rich set of available extensions and downloadable themes.
