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.

I've only tried it on two machines (one admitedly too old to have bothered trying) and I had no end of badness come of it. Sometimes I wonder just how Red Hat manages to make RHEL so solid when Fedora is what they start with.

Damn shame too, because Fedora always has a ton of what look like really cool things on paper...
