From what I gather from some messages on the Fedora Forums a while back, as
well as visiting the gnome home page, the gnome dev's are the ones who
decided what is needed and have given very few configuration options to the
end user. They're also allegedly not very open to user input. I'm using either
XFCE or KDE for the most part, because I wasn't up for the 'adventure' of
gnome3. I tried to run a Fedora16 livecd to check it out in a virtual
machine, but it went into 'fallback mode'. From what I gather that may
because I have nvidia graphics. :-/
