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.

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.
