Detailed Description

This spin includes the Cinnamon Desktop Enviroment as the default. It also includes LibreOffice and the libre-office-base package that don't come on the default Live CD. Other pre-installed packages are Brasero, Gimp, the Geany text editor and some Nemo additions such as the file-roller package to make Nemo and Nautilus more functional.

Benefit to Fedora

Cinnamon gives Fedora users another option for an out-of-the-box desktop environment other than Gnome3. It provides a Fedora-based alternative to other distributions such as Linux Mint. The 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 intial configuration and installation of additional packages required.
