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."

FC releases seem rushed...

Every release which I have tried (1, 2, 3 & 5) has had lots of small but irritating bugs when first released (eg. UDEV in FC3, kernel in FC5)

I really like the distro, and it's philosophy but it always feels a little untested when first installed. I hasten to add that the problems have always subsequently been fixed with updates, but that's no help if you don't have internet access!

Perhaps a bigger gap between the final test and the actual release would help make sure every thing works straight from the disc.

Otherwise, keep up the good work!
