Distro Hoppin`: Fedora 16

Filed under
Linux

Today I am here to show you Fedora 16 - dubbed Verne. I am sure Mr. Jules would write an exciting story about brave distro hoppers, were he alive today.

Now, there's a lot of desktop environments to choose from when you decide to go Fedora: KDE, GNOME, LXDE, Xfce. The official version is the one accompanied by the latest GNOME release and that's the door I decided to open, as I really have had a lot of positive experiences while using GNOME Shell. It even ended up replacing Unity inside my Ubuntu install.

Everything feels very natural when using GNOME 3, and the desktop just flows. But more on that, later!

The ISO maintains a reasonable CD size, measuring just a bit over 600 MBs. I am of the opinion that the developers could have made good use of those ~100 MBs and include some extra apps, but it's not that big of a deal.

rest here
