Laughlin was great, but I have skipped Lovelock because of too many bugs. Verne has solved these issues, and has worked well out of box. For the first time in 3 releases, the nouveau drivers have worked well, adding to overall system stability. For those of you who like the power of OpenGL 3 D Graphics, you may have to wait for Fusion to update the repo for Nvidia cards, but this should come with the Beta release.
I have had issues with drivers for the Nvidia GT330M card in my laptop for over a year, I had blamed intermittent instability on a known bug - the screen froze intermittently with the f14 x86_64 kernel,so I have lived with the issue and since the f15 Nvidia drivers didn\'t work for me in f16, I have been using the default nouveau drivers. but I choose fedora for stability and security. The updated 3.1 kernel has been stable so far, and security was very easy to configure.
The improved KDE 4.7 interface with LibreOffice 3.4.3 has further improved stability that will be welcomed by many users. The repos have been a good selection of applications, and will only increase as the official release date approaches.
Fedora should win more fans with this release
