Great work guys, F9 basically rocks. The "Fast-X" feature .. is sooo yummy I can't believe I lived with that ugly flicker the past decade. Also kde-4 .. soo cool, although we all agree it needs more polish. However, I am facing a perhaps higher than usual number of potential bugs! I will detail below, and you decide:

- GDM has no shortcut key for "Login" button, while the "Cancel" button right beside it has the C underlined! That hurts my eyes
- GDM does not remember the last session! So, I always need to choose kde4

- /media/windows-ntfs-drive/ is not automounted when KDE is started. So, okular starts and tries to open the pdf book I was reading, but fails! Not sure if that's a kde bug or a system one. But when I start KDE file manager, and click that directory, it mounts and opens fine!

- network service not brining bridge devices up or similar (I will detail in a separate thread)
- kernel not powering off my toshiba A105 S361 laptop upon shutdown! (grr .. this keeps coming and going on all 2.6 kernels)

- Synaptics driver not "tapping" enabled! This remains a bug to me even though people on https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=437609 seem to have found a work around. Since Fedora changed the default behaviour, could we at least get a release notes section on how to activate tapping

- Firefox3b5 sometimes showing solid color stripes over text, rendering it unreadable .. well, it is still in beta

Other than those, F9 still rox

been using it for a full working day now
i am impressed with the new packagekit so far

yet i don't see major changes that are apparent to the desktop user, but what more can they ask for
great work

Very happy that you guys are trying out the distribution. *However, you

should discuss these topics on fedora-list, and not the lists intended

for discussion of infrastructure, marketing, and translation.

Thanks! :-)
