Have been running it for about a week. Gnome 2.6 is nice. I like the spatial thing. They messed with the window focus controls. If you type in anything it brings the window to the front. Plus there doesn't seem to be an option to get back the old behavior. The 2.6 kernel has some serious issues. Locking up and the inabilty to kill -9 a process in some cases (Java and eclipse). I had to refert to the old FC1 kernel to get a stable system. Freshrpms.net ans synaptic take care of all of my codec problems, but would be cool if they used synaptic by default, then all we'd have to do is add a new repository.
Overall desktop wise I like it, but the kernel issue is a little disconcerting.
