[PlanetCCRMA] landing on the Fedora 18 planet

I've been on Fedora 18 since midway between alpha and beta. Yes, the
user interface for the installer is *awful*! Worse, it's the main
reason the release slipped from November to mid-January.

I'm not a regular KDE user, but it seems to me to be OK now. I'm
mostly a GNOME 3 user myself, although I usually install LXDE, MATE
and Cinnamon too just so I know how they work. But once I got past the
new installer, Fedora 18 has been solid. If you're already on 17 and
it's working for you, you might not need to upgrade. But I'm not
planning to drop back to 17 now.

How the Hell can the lion sleep with all those people singing "A weem
