To be fair you'll have to keep the 'New pair of shoes' scenario in your mind.

Looks very nice, not sure I like the new touchpad feature this was a bug in 
FC4 but seems to have been fixed/improved in FC5 you can now scroll pages by 
moving your finger up or down on the right hand side of the pad.

Its a bit of a pain actually, in Firefox one false slip and your back to page 

Beagle is hogging the CPU like murder (PIII 500) might have to disable it.

Had two lockups so far.

Using a Gnome session anything relating to KDE the icons don't register until 
you log out use a KDE session then log back into Gnome then you'll get 60% of 

Spamassassin is buggered complaining about a missing file, no entries in 
boot.log at all totally blank so I'll have to watch the boot process and 
quickly write it down.

NFS up the Swanee cant write to fileshareset.

Add & Remove packages painful but brilliant gets apps from the web if you want 
to use your CD/DVD then you have to add it in the yum.repos.d so its a bit 
like Debian in respect of adding an installation source.

Very good log viewer (again I don't think its working properly) has a calender 
bottom left so you can pick a date to look at one major floor no scroll bar 
along the bottom so unless you expand the view pane manually the end of the 
line gets chopped off.

Theres a few things missing but new toys added, oh SeLinux is pretty evil now 
so you really need to be on your toes on the one hand that's good for 
security but bad if your not sure what you are doing.

I still have loads to do, installed this on a spare 40GB HDD I suppose I'll 
stick with it but if not I can soon bang FC4 back in.
