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."

I've been playing with FC5 Test 3 for a couple weeks and I have an NForce4 Pro SLI chipset with a 6800GS video card. Most things worked great, but I did have to patch the nvidia driver to get it to work. What was weird though was that I had to patch it to even work with my custom/stock 2.6.15.5 kernel.

Anyway, it's happy now ;) But I would say it was more difficult a process then it should have been.

Now if only the Creative X-Fi was supported, oh well.
