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 been using Linux since Red Hat Linux 6.2. Went through all their releases and this is the first time I am so disappointed with Fedora 9. It seems there are a lot of bugs in this release...

- restart networking after reboot because of missing routing entries
- SCIM cannot start at all
- bind doesn't like me?
- Firefox 3... (I know, is beta)
- Thunderbird update problem

Possibly I am just unlucky with my HP Pavilion dv1604tn. Install Fedora means ask for trouble, IMHO, otherwise just go for Ubuntu. Every releases there are a lot of bugs (hiccup?) but this release is just too much...

Hope people don't encounter problem like I do...

You are not alone!

Laptop installations have improved tremendously overall since I first started using Linnx in 2000-1, but for some reason, it is still pretty chancy as to what will and won't work immediately after installation. What works out of the box on one release fails on the next. Go figure. This is just my general impression. Now, many laptops come with an extra hard drive bay. I keep Windows on one and Fedora or Ubuntu on the other. Eventually, I get things working but it can take a while.
