As someone who had migrated to linux in the past but had been using windows just because of the 'fear' that linux doesn't work well on laptops, fedora 8 seemed to be nearly perfect for me. I had tried fedora 7 on my laptop in the past and it turned out to be nightmare to install and get running on my system - the installer itself failed to launch without the noacpi option. But for Fedora 8, things worked right out of the box. The installation was smooth. However, the boot process seemed to be a bumpy ride as my laptop started hanging on trying to boot up fedora as soon as the installation finished. But that was due to my wireless hardware, and ndiswrapper took care of that. The boots following that were smooth. There are slight hiccups though. For me, fedora 8 (32 bit on a 64 bit platform) has been behaving a little awkwardly though, even if it seems to be a beautiful distro. Network disconnects cause the system to stall, and my system feezes once in 2-3 days. Still, fedora 8 has been a rather pleasant experience.
