Red Hat The Fedora team has clearly spent a lot of time trying to refine some of the smaller, but perhaps more common user interface elements in some thoughtful ways. Take, for instance, the new setting that allows you to manage power settings from the login screen. It's a small tweak but it makes shutting down simple. There's no need to login when you wake from hibernate - just shut down straight from the login screen. Similar attention to these basics can be found throughout the new release.

On my machine which accepted all linuxes including previous fedoras; the installer crashed and outputed a bug report for me. It was the final and it was checked for media consistency.

Its not so well done. Because installers should never ever crash due to a bug.

... And I assume that you took the time to report the bug (instead of just complaining about it) - in-order to make sure that no -future- installer will crash on your machine, right?

There's something very odd about this sentence (fragment).

I've had the same issue with both 8 and 9. it seesm it has issues with my sata chipset. Considering its about 4 years old and supported by every other distro I know including older versions of Fedora (which is what I originally installed on my machine when I built it 4 years ago), I'm thoroughly confused and frustrated.
