I've heard a few complaints about this version on Slashdot.

I'm also amazed at the fact that they're packaging KDE 4 in its heavy development status and there's no KDE 3.5 version.

KDE4 was pretty unusable last time I tried it. Saddens me too because KDE 3.5 was so great. Fedora generally does a half-assed job on packaging KDE though.

I upgraded a Fedora 8 box to Fedora 9 at work today. It went relatively smoothly. Weird issues are occurring though like the ctrl and shift keys not working suddenly and weird symbols appearing where there should be letters.

I think I'm going to do a clean install later. One annoying thing is that nvidia drivers don't work with the new Xorg version. Have to use the nv drivers (or if you're feeling lucky the Nouveau drivers). Theres a beta out from nvidia that should work but it doesn't do 3d and it doesn't support the old gf4mx in my machine at work.

I avoid the open JDK stuff and install the official Sun JRE/JDK. It generally works better IMO. Provides a better browser plugin than the icedtea stuff.

ext4 is only supported if you pass a boot time option to the installer IIRC. I wouldn't use it until its stable. They said they're not changing the on disk format but you never know.
