Wasn't there a Fedora 9 "respin" ?

I agree with the OP.  While I wouldn't say F10 is scary, there are a lot
of little things that don't work. (I've been running RH and Fedora since
RH8, so I've seen a release or two...)

If Fedora/KDE are going to continue releasing software of this maturity,
I think the time before support expires should be increased and there
should be a 2 week pre release - release.

I'm running F10 as my daily OS.  Its beautiful and its great, but I've
spent a lot of time the last couple days troubleshooting and reporting
bugs and I am not done.

Another thing that would help this is if there was more pre release
testing and bug reporting.  See my post requesting F10/KDE4.2 Live CDs.
I am not willing to install pre release sw on my machine, but I will
test with Live CDs.  

I am sure that the release sw quality would improve quite a bit if we
all spent a few hours running the pre release software.
