Fedora 23 Cinnamon preview

Fedora 23 Yum Extender

The Cinnamon Desktop will be the newest desktop environment with its own Fedora installation image when Fedora 23 is released late next month.

That would add one more Fedora Spin to the list of existing Spins. Fedora Spins are Fedora editions with a desktop environment different from the GNOME 3 desktop environment. GNOME 3 is the default desktop environment of Fedora.

In this post are a few screenshots from a test installation of Fedora 23 Cinnamon beta 1, which was released a couple of days ago. The final edition of Fedora 23 will be released October 27 (2015).

This image shows the login window.

The system information shows that the beta 1 release comes with Linux kernel 4.2 and Cinnamon 2.6.13. It likely will be Cinnamon 2.8 by the time the stable edition is released.

Yum Extender is the default graphical package manager installed on Fedora 23 Cinnamon beta 1, and it will probably remain so in the stable edition.
