Reviews of Fedora
- Fedora 28 is another solid release, though vanilla gnome looks somewhat dull
- Fedora 27 makes desktop operating system less relevant with too many bugs & crashes - Dedoimedo
- Fedora 27 is more like a testing ground and provides less polished user experience - DistroWatch
- Fedora 25 is not something worth to recommend
