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.

Funny ... the latest release of a very popular linux distro has many problems reported ... yet folks quickly jump to the defense of the distro. Microsoft releases an OS with a gazillion more variables ... and they get hammered for 12 months.

What value, exactly, are you hoping to add to this forum with that post? New Fedora releases have their problems. It has different goals and a different target audience than do Microsoft's OSes. I will be waiting 3 months or so before upgrading my customers to Fedora 9. Of Linux distros, you would have done rather better to pick CentOS, Ubuntu, or Debian releases for comparison. Their goals and target audience also differ, even between each other, so the validity of comparisons would still be limited. But Fedora's goals involve being Free and cutting edge. They do quite well on reliability and quality within those constraints. But you can't just ignore the constraints.

Your post was intended to foster needless conflict, and I am calling you on it.
