Fedora 15 Xfce review

Final Thoughts: There are lots more about Fedora 15 that I have not covered in this review. Because those are the same across the Fedora editions, I will save them for a review of the main edition, which should be published some time next week. Specific to this Spin, I think the developers should have spent more time in customizing the default Xfce desktop. On a modern desktop operating system, somethings are expected to work out of the box. Unfortunately, on the Xfce Spin of Fedora 15, the most basic of those do not. I hope, Fedora 16 Xfce will provide a better, out-of-the-box user-experience.

Resources: Torrent and direct download ISO images of Fedora 15 Xfce for 32- and 64-bit platforms are available for download here. Support questions may be posted here and here.

Screenshots: View a few more screenshots from a test installation of Fedora 15 Xfce.

This is a screenshot of the desktop running Cairo-Dock, instead. looks and feels a lot better than the default desktop.
