    you should COMPLAIN LOUDLY and FILE BUG REPORTS.
    Guess what - I did, for a long time. I even ran updates-testing.
    Truth is, most of the reports were closed by the end-of-life auto-close daemon without even beeing looked at by anyone.

    My conclusion is, that there are enough testers and the main problem is not testing but bug fixing.
    Therefore, I will simply wait 2-3 months after a new Fedora version has been released. The only downside is, Fedora installers in the release images are badly broken each time - so the big question is whether it installs in the first place before applying updates

    While I don't love the Anaconda changes, 64-bit Fedora 18 (KDE) has worked great for me. Maybe the problems you guys are having are coming from GNOME?

    Or it is just standard security and you want processes to run in the background (such as in a server environment.) Also, it doesn't appear when you install another desktop environment, that is how I found this out, so wrong on both counts.

    I have not used fedora 18 or gnome 3.6,so what you are saying is if you want to logout, you need to shut down or restart? I think there are valid reasons to logout, and can't imagine why that feature would be taken away.

    So in other words there is no allowance for shared computer in a household where the husband and wife have separate accounts?

    In other words in a business setting we must allocate machines for every single individual even though we have three shifts?

    Your mysterious use-case is only applicable in your mother's basement where nobody else can stand the smell of your dirty underwear.

    I don't believe you read his comment fully. He said, "Add another desktop environment or an user to enable log out."

    so it was basicly clear that fedora 18 is a crap-release, how can somebody be suprised about that?

    Fedora releasedates:

    15 2011-05-24
    16 2011-11-08
    17 2012-05-29
    18 2013-01-15

    19 will come then 2013-05-(20-30)

    So they did postpone the release 2 months after the regualr release date. So it was clear that the screwed it up... maybe it was neccessary like they said because they had to change big parts to make it modular from a big chunk what was not modular, and there was no better transition possible.

    I think they had 2 possible ways to deal with it, dont release it at all and with that, pull much work they made to make it somewhat stable to the trash. Who wants to do that? And start finally to focus on the 19 release to not screw that up again because they could not focus on that.

    The 3rd way would be to release it when its done... come out then in 2 months with gnome 3.6 when anybody think its a old thing and nobody want it anymore...

    Because of that I am at rawhide... I want gnome 3.8 stuff... fedora is supposed to have newer gnome-packages than ubuntu... if thats not true, wth should anybody use it? its THE Gnome-(shell) distribution...

    So of course that is the shittiest release, 1.5 months delay and some big discussions about it, was not because all went perfectly... how stupid can some good developers be...

    Which desktop environment do you try to install? You mention about server meaning you might likely run in terminal mode. (CTrl+ALT+F2). It appears you have encounter a bug so you can report it with provided screenshots.

    Sometimes it makes sense to kill and restart your session, e.g. for killing an unknown misbehaving process

    This zealotry of Gnome devs removing features is bad.

    If you have fully read the post, you would understand why logout is not needed when there is only one user and a desktop environment.
