Cinnamon on Fedora 17

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
Well, I wasn't talking about deploying it to users at Mohawk, just my
machine.  Since I have moved over to SES and am now doing Redhat
administration (as well as AIX and HP-UX) on the Open Systems Team, I have
uninstalled Windows on my work laptop and started running Redhat RHEL
workstation.  I was hoping Fedora 17 Gnome/Cinnamon would give me
personally a better desktop experience.

=============================================================== From: Lynn Dixon ------------------------------------------------------ Reading the latest post I realized I had forgotten to reply to this one. I grabbed a spare SSD and installed Fedora 17 on it using an e-sata cable. I then setup Cinnamon, and I have to say... its really slick. It actually made Gnome 3 usuable for me! Randy had told me about it a few weeks (or more) ago when he tried it in Mint, and I was glad to see the brought it over for Fedora. I am going to install Crossover, Notes, Citrix, and all the other applications I need for work and give it a shakedown as a workstation over the next few weeks. DE still e * t ve
