I originally fled from GNOME 3 ("A triumph of Fashion over 
Functionality") to xfce, from F17 I started using mate (though I started 
looking at in F16).

I think mate should become the default desktop environment for Fedora.  
Fedora should not be dumbing down the user experience, please leave that 
to Apple & Microsoft.

If people want a brain dead desktop environment, they can always use 
Microsoft Window 8 metro...  :-)
