I’m very impressed with the speed of Fedora-35Beta/Gnome-41. My desktop with only 3.4GB of RAM struggled with Ubuntu (a couple of years ago) and is fine on Fedora-34, but my impression is that with 35 the desktop is faster.
Gnome seems to have it just right now. Even the way workspaces are dealt with is clever. The hot-corner that kept catching me out can be switched off with Settings > Multitasking > Hot Corner.
I’d like to keep the Dash onscreen because it saves me one click, but that’s just personal taste (laziness?).
