Fedora 16 + Gnome 2.x
Well, not really (it is still GNOME 3.x), but the GNOME tweaks by the Linux Mint crew, dubbed Cinnamon, make it look that way. And now it has been packaged for Fedora 16.
There is a write-up here, but it is ridiculously simple. In a nutshell:
1. download the repo file (as root)
wget -o /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-cinnamon.repo http://repos.fedorapeople.org/repos/leigh123linux/cinnamon/fedora-cinnamon.repo
yum install cinnamon
3. log out
4. in the GDM sign in window, click your name, select CINNAMON from Session menu below, then enter password and log in as normal
It worked flawlessly for me. A quick ps command showed me this:
/usr/bin/gnome-session --session=cinnamon /usr/bin/cinnamon

I've been curious about Cinnamon, and what folks would think of it.
Good to know that there are still some easy access options for Gnome 3 refugees!

Sweet! Last night, I downloaded that latest Fedora for a test spin and I'll be sure to give this a shot. Thanks.
