Question Fedora Enhancements


I was wondering if there are any graphical or UI changes made to Fedora that are different from Red Hat 9.0? Also are there any other major changes, excluding it's premise of community and frequent change?

I haven't had the time to try it out yet, so I was wondering if anyone who had used it could share their experiences/impressions.

Well, as they say, the first changes will be evolutionary, not revolutionary. I have been working with Test 1, Test 2, and now Test 3 completely updated to about where the official release will be this week.

It's a "better" Red Hat 9 for now. Better graphics, updated software, improved hardware support. So, considering that Red Hat 9 is now going to be "obsolete" in a few months...I look forward to a complete transition to Fedora. I am going to do a CLEAN install and start over...although a little time consuming setting it up, it will be fun!

I'm pretty much in teh same boat, though I may be a week behind in updates to FC test.

I'll test the RH9 -> FC1 upgrade path before doing a wipe/install (if problems arise) on at least one of my boxen.
