Fedora has invested a lot on infrastructure that supports other desktop
environments including spins.fedoraproject.org and Fedora includes KDE,
Xfce etc and Cinnamon is under review at
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=771252.  There were genuine
concerns about the maintenability of MATE and that has nothing to do
with pushing GNOME or whatever else.
