As a user who considers his technical abilities mediocre at best, the
big problem for me has been that in one release I learn to configure a
particular piece of hardware one way, and then in the next that just
doesn't work anymore and I either have to learn the brand new way that
is likely not documented in any obvious locations because it's so new,
or live with hardware that is only half working. In the past I've
accepted this, but this year I just can't spare the time and actually
need my hardware to work properly.

Not a particular constructive comment, just wanted to expand on
Stephen's comment here.

And this is the crux of our problem:

fedora is for latest leading-edge pkgs. It's not easy or reasonable to have the latest of things AND have a stable interface for them.

So if latest software is fedora's raison d'etre then it sure seems like fedora is just not for you.

how else do we set reasonable expectations?
