Sounds like all things considered that F8 was a success by this review.
Expecting Fedora to be 'polished' like a distro that never changes anything was
a bad assumption for them from the start.  The funny thing is there really is
nothing more or less polished about Gnome in F8 than Ubuntu/Gentoo/etc... its
Gnome! (which I love btw, just making the point its all pretty much just gnome)
