Red Hat "The Fedora Project attracts a lot of interest from the Linux faithful. While there are perhaps more newbie-friendly, corporate-friendly, or special-interest-focused distributions, Fedora continues to wear the innovation hat. Fedora announced Fedora 9 Beta late last month, and Test Center reviewers replaced the current Fedora 8 install to see what the new version has to offer. Since Fedora 9 (Stirling) is still in beta, occasional bugs and some rough edges were inevitable. But there is a solid indication of the new things to come that makes the stable release, expected May 1, worth watching."

>Beyond startup times (a know issue with Fedora)

Yes, i know. People often complain about startup time and yum. But that's not a big problem for me. I don't re-start my system that often.

But the general performance is really annoying.

Gnash is just one example another would be startup time of a gnome-terminal, etc.

It isn't a FF3 compatibility problem, i have this experience with Fedora8.

I don't know if it makes much sense to fill a bug. Because it is not a bug by itself. On my powerfull desktop everything is in sync. But on my small laptop i feel the performance differences quite bad.
