    Anyone running the new Gnome 2.12


    I was wondering if someone allready had the time to install/create the rpm's for the new Gnome 2.12.
    I'm curious about the findings and stability.

    And if Fedora Core 3 rpms are available.

    As I'm not planning on using FC4 anytime soon.
    Thinking about skipping FC4 and use FC5 when it's available.

    i downloaded the gnome 2.12 live cd, its nice but the difference between that and 2.10 is not huge.. i will be updateding permanantly when the gentoo ebuild is out.

    I've read that nautilus has been updated grately.. including speed performance.

    Is it true or neglectable.

    its hard to say partly because i barely use nautilus in general usage anyway but also because the live cd is much much slower in general than a proper installation what with it accessing the cd every time you click somthing virtualy :) i get the impression that the whole setup is a bit more slick however one thing that has alwase irritated me is still there; new icons that apear when you plug in a usb device or whatnot apear over the top of existing icons.
