My rule of thumb with Red Hat/Fedora is that odd numbered releases are stable, as I've had good experiences with Red Hat 7.1, 7.3, 9 and Fedora Core 3. I had Fedora Core 4 on my laptop as that was the latest available when I bought it, and I was quite happy with it, but I decided to install Fedora 7 on June 6th 2007. So this review is after about a month of usage. Note even though the "good" section below is quite small in size, it's large in substance. So in summary, F7 is three steps forward and two steps back, compared to FC4. Also rather than just complaining, I will try and report/fix the bugs I found, and will update the items below with links accordingly.
