Installed Fedora 7 today. Notes and observations:
I don't know why, but it took over an hour and 30 minutes to install on my MacBook Pro in VMWare Fusion Beta 3. Fedora Core 6 took under 20 min.
They have added an interesting hardware reporting tool - Smolt. The client runs on first login (two screenshots here. All sorts of interesting statistics, including right now VMware is the #2 HW platform they've seen installed @ 6.6%. Another one, it looks like they've had 10,000 updates in the past 2 days. Those are some interesting usage numbers.
The X server seems to have built in support for VMware of some kind. I get the nice transparent mouse control thing where you can just move the mouse out of the VM and the host gets control back again.
Nice add/remove software controls. Cote seems to be infecting the world with his big fonts. My god, the pacakge manager fonts are big. BROWSE! Still not as slick as the ubuntu synaptic manager. Polish isn't there, still a little overwhelming. Project Indiana take note. :)
