Not sure it's ready for the general user yet but it's getting there

Yeah I check in on them from time to time and am suprised by the advances they make. I figure in the next couple years it will be a great OS. They do need to work out the install and anoyance time. When ever I do a fresh install I count on about 3 to 4 hours to get things working right. That is just to long for the average user though.

Last install I did of fedora on my lappy went real fast and my wireless was up in running out of the box. I spent maybe an hour from start to finish. Alot of that was getting DVD playback, Flash and MP3 playback.
