    thanks for the detailed guide on making fedora 18 xfce  a fully fledged distro.....to a lesser extent i tried something similar with fedora 18 lxde and it broke...what's more no matter what i have done with any spin/version of fedora, font rendering just looks terrible, nowhere near as sharp and as crisp as ubuntu...it shouldn't be that difficult; a fedora-based distro such as fuduntu looks simply fabulous; the only reason i don't use it as my main linux is because you can't add extras such as fedora utils or rpm fusion.

    You realize that Kompozer has not been updated since 2010.  Do you really wish to suggest that it become as feature-rich as any Adobe product?
