It works for me!

The install was smooth enough. I did not try to do an upgrade, just emailed a few homedirs to myself, then restored them after the install.

Using the LXterm windowing system I get decent response on an old dell dimension 8200 tower with 2GB ram.

Pros: appears stable, but with some caveats.
Cons: Major diverse problems affecting Samba interacting with Selinux

With reservations:

(Remember, any system is only as good as its hardware, at best.)

1) Not for older machines

2) Not for basic users (the cost of reasonable hardware alone is more than basic users would want to commit.)

3) for Gamers: Only for that minority of Linux gamers with a DIY propensity. The Gaming side of the industry leans too strongly towards the paid software side of the market. Most gamers will spend that money, a minority will not. e.g. there is only one gaming mouse manufacturer that is supported in Linux. This alone, does not bode well for Linux fairness.

4a) for serious non-gaming users: This is a good choice, also for game programmers and developers, so long as they can port effectively to the Microsoft/paid software environment.

4b) For serious non-gaming users who are not developers. Gaming hardware often is a good choice because of the resources that have gone into its development, fuelled by the gamers' money.

This is my situation with my latest new computer running F20.

Asus Maximus VI Formula Motherboard with 32 Gb. of gSkill ram.

Boot: OCZ Vertex 4 .5 tb. SSD in LVM with 2 Tb. WD Black FAEZ.

Data Storage on a combo of a RAID 5 D-Link DNS-343 and a 2X2 RAID0 box on the end of a USB3 connection, not part of the LVM.

...and more.

So my "game" is largely << deverminage >> or debugging spreadsheets, sound and video, multilingual.

I am also starting to look into running NFS on the same hardware.
