I've been dismayed with Fedora for a while now. A mindset has taken over to attempt to duplicate the desktop experience from other operating systems and Linux distributions. This comes at a cost of resources and "capabilities" that to my mind should be left to these other players. Let Ubuntu have all the aunt Tilly's of the world... shrug.

Having said that, Fedora 14 has been running here for a couple of days with "systemd" enabled and it has been a relatively enjoyable experience. Setting up daemons to run at boot is actually much easier with systemd than with SysV init scripts.

It was also very nice to offer an interested neighbour a Linux virtual machine. Installed the SPICE client on his Windows machine and he has been happily connecting over wireless to a F14 VM and playing around with it remotely. Pretty sweet.

All 'round good effort.
