i am grateful for all of the work that Fedora and Redhat developers put into this distro.
I went back to FC8. FC10 was, perhaps, the worst Redhat/Fedora experience I have ever had. The new kernel barfs on two of my laptops. There are device permission issues. It also bugs the hell out of me when Fedora makes a "best practices" decision that prevents me from logging in as root. Finally, I have yet to find a virtue in KDE4; not a single feature that is superior in usability to KDE3.5x. FC needs to treat this as a separate branch and make it available on the installation DVD.
BTW, why on earth does Fedora seem to think that it is so important to hide the boot process?
