Some folks saw this coming!  Turns out that now other desktops are following suit to TabletLand, even windows 8 :(  The traditional desktop is apparently dying :(  We ***guninea pigs*** got to test that out(kde 4 series in Fedora 9), gnome 3 series as well :)  It has sharp edges, but it will get there.  The Mint Folks have nice looking themes that maybe can be brought into Fedora for nice incorporation for those users that liked Gnome 2.X  :)
