The Fedora LXDE version is much faster and more usable than the Fedora image with Gnome 3.x. For installing VMware Tools we also recommend this Fedora image, because the shrinking feature of the tools will only work with this LXDE image.

The Fedora LXDE image is also a more light download with smaller applications installed. But the big hindrance of the new Gnome is its strange user interface. The Gnome also seemed to have guided Ubuntu onto the path to the abyss.

Is the new Gnome the death of Linux on the desktop?

Preinstalled apps: Firefox, Transmission, Sylpheed, Pidgin, Gnumeric, Abiword, Osmo, Assunder, Gnome Baker, and some more tools.
