Fedora 27 LXQt spin screenshots

I was always curious to explore LXQt desktop since the moment I heard about it for the first time. I have tried installing LXQt desktop in Fedora & Ubuntu releases by configuring third-party repositories. But my experience was always incomplete. Every time, there was something missing. Like entries in the application menu, desktop background ..etc. The Manjaro LXQt Edition, on the other hand, was over customized with a lot of colors and effects. I did n't want to use such a system in my daily life.

Recently, I saw someone shared a screenshot of Fedora 27 LXQt spin on facebook. I was quite desperate with my experience with recent Fedora Workstation releases because of it's poor quality and lack of stability. Still, I decided to give a try for the LXQt spin. To my surprise, the experience was quite impressing. Let's have a walk through various screens of Fedora 27 LXQt spin.
