    Careful... Those sneaky Gnomes are scoping out the BBQ and biding their time.. They WILL have that BBQ!

    That's because Gnomes are sneaky.. They do get aggressive, but turn into a meek little Gnome when you are around to see it.... at least until that one day when they think they have the numbers to win... Then... They redesign everything, confuse you soooo much.. And take over.

    I think that the greatest is, that I take many things in linux for granted these days.
    It can be workspaces, almost ultimate freedom in software installation, updates for everything and not just the system, precise overview of files given package installs and where, ton of WMs, ability to kill any offensive fullscreen app from tty etc etc. And of course, most OSS apps are designed with one goal which they perform nice and clean, without all the cr4p that nobody needs.

    In Windows, all these are either non-existant or just screwed.

    And Fedora specific is another great tool - Yum, the king of package managers.

    So thanks!

    Re: Got something good to say? ...

    I would like to thank everyone that has been part of the development of Fedora. I do computer repair and rebuilds and Fedora is what I offer my clients to leave Windows. In the last 5 months I have installed Fedora for over 300 clients. It has been a mix of Fedora 17 or 18, 32 or 64 bit depending upon their system. I am looking forward to Fedora 19. My goal is to switch as many Windows users to Fedora as I can.

    Keep up the good work!

    As a note to my last post I would like to say that I left Linux Mint and switched to Fedora. I would also like to say the Fedora blows Mint away. I had used Mint for 4 years. I have been encouraging a lot of my Mint friends to switch to Fedora and they are enjoying the change.

    Again , keep up the good work!

    After setting up computers with Linux yesterday in my work place, realized (again) how amazing linux is.

    So, a big thank you to all developers who have made this OS possible !

    KDE 4.10 is very well done considering that they have changed a few things like the lock screen/screensaver and overall it is a great DE. Easily makes it in my top 5 DEs.

    MATE is pretty good. Requires customization to begin with, but is a GREAT DE. Especially with Compiz. Also makes it in the top 5.

    And the best part: It's all free and open source.

    As a return user...I must say that Fedora 18 was the easiest install I have had in a long time. Wifi and video card no problems...still breaking it in, but it looks like a good one! Thank you to all the developers and suport staff....great job!

    For all those who work to get Fedora out there and keep it all going (including as you would expect, this Forum) . It is appreciated.

    The quick answer is to get used to the hotkey not the hot corner. :-)

    The Windows key works on both!

    I would agree except that fedup was easier. :-)
