If you are that concerned why not atleast give the live cd or usb a
try?  the liveusb even has persistance now... rather slick concept..
can't wait for the dvd to finish downloading so I can set it up

I followed your suggestion. I'm using the Fedora 9 on usb right now. This is very nice, puts all others to shame. There's a problem preventing me from going F9. I've got an 8800 GTS by Nvidia. I don't have cash right now to buy another graphics card. The nvidia driver and the xorg in F9 are not playing nicely together. I've got several apps in F8 using 3d acceleration. I got the Nvidia before I discovered that Nvidia would be last to go open source if they ever do, and it could take ATI a while. Nvidia is still in the lead with performance, but I'd be willing to sacafrice a little performance and go with ATI if I had the money, and their drivers were open source already. I tried to register on nvidia forums but received no email about my registration or "forgot password" link. I'll be waiting for a new driver version from Nvidia, and I'm pretty disappointed with them.
