Well they didn't say only the negative things, because as they say
they still love and use fedora. You should really listen to this part
of the podcast (20 minutes)

I totally agree with them regarding Fedora 8 graphics look, and the
wallpaper. No matter what you say but users judge desktops on how they
look. You could argue with Fedora 7 looks vs Fedora Core 6 looks if
you like one more that the other regarding your personal taste, but
Fedora 8 wallpaper and complete look it really beneath the previously
high quality standards brought by FC6 and F7.

When I first saw F8 infnity theme on some wiki or a blog I looked at
it and thought to myself "Not bad first attempt" because it looked
only as someones first attempt which was obvious that wouldn't pass
quality check... But I was suprise when I booted F8 for the first time
and saw the same wallpaper, I was really shocked...

Valent.
