Just saw this:
Now, it's not a great review - he recycled a home directory from
Xubuntu, so not sure why he made it a point to show off the
funkalicious configuration that occurred as a result, but when it
comes to the part after "Live Session and Installation", I can't say I
totally disagree with him on all points.
There really isn't anything 'polished' looking about the default
setup. I know I'm new here, and I have no clue how the default look of
the spin came to be, but I can't help but wonder - has any thought
ever been given to spiffing things up a little? Even if everyone
involved with the spin *loves* the Nodoka+Adwaita combination, I think
two small changes would make for a better first impression:
* Using the Fedora branded xfce4_xicon1 by default on the Applications Menu
* Setting the Clock and Notification Area to have 'no borders'
Honestly, I could care less about anything else the review said - most
of it seemed to be him rambling on about Fedora not having proprietary
codecs and such, but I *can* see how a new user might find the default
presentation a little un-polished.
Any other thoughts?
Having used Xubuntu for 6 years, I found the default desktop background of
fireworks to be exciting. It really showed up bright and colorful on my LCD
monitor. From the no contrast, blue and gray of Xubuntu to the colorful
theme of Fedora XFCE was a welcome change. I did bring some of my old
configuration forward, but I did not allow it during the installation.
Instead, I carefully copied my panel configurations and Orage Global Clock
Perhaps down the road, I will find fault with Fedora, but for an initial
installation, I was quite happy with it.
