In my Fedora 14 review I mentioned that I would skip Fedora 15 due to the many changes planned. Well I got a new sandy bridge laptop on which the display wasn't supported by Fedora 14, so I decided to take the plunge with Fedora 15 for which RC3 was declared gold the day my laptop arrived.

So after a couple of weeks of use and tweaking, here is my review compared to Fedora 14.
In summary, lots of change, and lots of tweaking required to get a useable environment.
Also, I see BTRFS is being earmarked for Fedora 16, so Fedora 17 should be a good release if you're looking for stability. I'm not picking on BTRFS particularly, it's just people will have more time to concentrate on polish rather than features.

The good

The bad
