Feedback about Fedora Cinnamon


I have been using Linux Mint Cinnamon for a while.
I now like to try Fedora instead.
It seems default Fedora desktop is Gnome 3.
I do not prefer Gnome3, and I am being generous.

I am wondering if Fedora Cinnamon is well supported.
I like to hear the pros and cons from those
who are now using Fedora Cinnamon.

Thank you.

Considering your statement about how critical you are of Gnome 3, perhaps one of the best users of Fedora Cinnamon might be yourself, by way of either a virtual machine or downloading and running Fedora Cinnamon Live.

Fedora has a new package manager:
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/DNF?rd=Dnf

Can we use yum on Fedora?

Any one is using or have used Centos Cinnamon?
How did it worked out?

Interesting... Fedora has always been my favorite RH spin, but I've not messed w/ it in a while and have never heard of DNF. Looking at the wiki, it looks basically the same as yum.

Off to download the current version of Fedora.

OK... Looking at Fedora 25 for a few..

It looks like DNF is more or less the same as yum. I'm sure there's under the hood stuff that is different, but from a basic use perspective, which to me is to install/remove packages and check for and install updates... it seems the same.

If you want to use yum, it appears it's installed as well (at least for now). Not sure why you wouldn't just start to migrate towards dnf if you intend to continue using Fedora.

I like to keep learning yum since I am also new to yum.
RHEL / Centos is way behind Fedora.

May be even a few years behind in kernel version. It is on Linux kernel 3.10 or so currently, if I recall.

Fedora is bleeding edge... may be almost near current linux kernel verion, like 4.8 or so.....

I suspect may be two years or more before Centos/RHEL is near 4.8 kernel version....

There is also a huge change (improvement?) at 4.6 or 4.6 kernels..... if I recall reading....
