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.

"Fedora 9 includes the most advanced Linux software even in key components for desktop way too fast. KDE 4.0 + ext4 + Firefox 3 beta -> all ~ BETA.
"

KDE 4.0.3 is what is included in Fedora 9 and it is not marked as a beta release upstream. KDE 4.0.4 is already available as an update and KDE 4.1 will follow. Refer

Ext4 is explicitly marked as experimental and Red Hat has several ext filesystem developers such as Stephen Tweedie and can lead this effort. You have to pass special options to the installer to even see this so this is not a issue at all.

Firefox 3 beta 5 is what is included in the latest Fedora as well as Ubuntu even though it is supposed to be a long term supported release. Red Hat employs one of the primary release engineers of Firefox in Linux so it has a advantage in this regard.
