Parent article: Fedora 12 released
I downloaded the live CD to give it a spin. Quite nice on both a ~1 year old ThinkPad (Intel graphics) and my ~3 year old Compaq laptop (ATI graphics). Very polished, compiz worked fine on both (gotta try out the eye candy). Some things worked that I haven't figured out how to get working with Gentoo, LCD backlight control, extra buttons (volume control/mute, WiFi kill), LED on the WiFi kill switch. Maybe all of this worked w/ Fedora before, but I hadn't looked at Fedora for a very long time.
