I had the same question in the back of my mind. There are some great evolutions going on right now, but they take a lot of time to mature. I've also been wondering about desktop environments, since fedora 10/11 use KDE 4, which, even 4.2, I find very low in quality compared to 3.5, how will Red Hat provide a decent desktop? (Don't remind me of Gnome, I've used it for years and I still don't like it).
