I had installed fc4-test 2,but at last I gave it, I have to say that IT is better than fc1 almost everywhere
BUT one thing that I could not bare ,I could not use wubi-input way (a Chinese input way)
I am Chinese ,and the fc4 box waste much haadware resource
so I do not want to upgrade my box to fc4 but just upgrade my gnome to the lastest version
