Fedora Core Lunapark reviews Fedora Core 5, and concludes: "I would only recommend FC5 to people who do not own Nvidia video cards or do not mind tweaking a lot default settings to get things working. Otherwise stay with what you are using and wait for SUSE 10.1 or Ubuntu's Dapper. But if you do stick with FC 5 and get past the quirks, it is quite impressive and I am already eagerly awaiting FC 6."

Yes, I agree. The wallpaper looks good.

However one would think that they could have come up with a wallpaper that looks good and doesn't have the disadvantage of having pattern details that are about the same size as icons you may have on your desktop. This makes files harder to see.

This may sound as a minor problem, but to people that are visually impaired this may pose a problem. I filed a bug report on this and got a WONTFIX response within hours. This really not the attitude you want to see from developers. It takes a lot more than the ability to write good C code to create a modern usable desktop environment. If such skills are not taken advantage of, Bill Gates will have an easy job of keeping their desktop dominance.

To be accessible to people with disabilities is much more important to Linux desktop acceptance than you may firt think, as many government and large companies have policis requiring equippments they use should be accessible.
