Nice to see that Fedora's love for the bleeding edge, the main reason I run Fedora actually, didn't get in the way of making sane choices for defaults.

Only one relating to defaults that I recall being questionable was the switch to the open source video drivers... and possibly SELinux, which while a pain in the ass was stable.
