New desktops for Fedora

The H looks at the inclusion of the Cinnamon desktop in the Fedora 17 repositories. "Now that Muffin and the Cinnamon package have been approved, the desktop has been included in the Fedora 17 standard repositories; from there, it can be installed using a command such as yum install cinnamon and then selected when signing in via GDM or another login manager. Provided that the desktop continues to be maintained, it will likely also be part of Fedora 18, which is scheduled to be released this autumn." The article also mentions that there is an add-on repository for Ubuntu's Unity desktop.

OMG! Ubuntu! warns that installing Unity on top of Fedora 17 "will replace some core GNOME components with Unity-compatible versions" and should be done with caution.
