    I am realy impressed what ist working out of the box in fusion. It could relay be my new distro – instead of mandriva. The only bad point: the relay big foodprint – needs 5GB to install on disk. It could realy be the best dristo in town if some apps would be replaced by smaller one. I.A. tomboy/mono…
    I am willing to make some suggestions on makeing fusion smaller – but where should i post it…

    make you day

    Hi Valent, Nice work! Eagerly awaiting f14 stable. Installed the RC and it worked fine until I did an update. After downloading and installing 411(!) updates, GDM failed to launch login window. Installed it again, with same result. Has this bug been resolved?
    How far away are we from f14 final? (Your best estimate) –Perry
