I tried KDE 3.2 upgrade on FC1 & Suse 9. Apart from obvious sound bugs I
saw not a lot of difference in speed there too.
Maybe it is less noticeable on top-end machines?
But I will take all the speed increases I can get!
I want Linux to not just match but indeed surpass competitors!

Hmm, I keep my FC1 prelink cache up to date so maybe you are noticing
that. I'm sure there will be a difference in heavy multitasking
situations in the final release.

I agree, FC1 is better than I would have been led to believe by Internet
reviews articles. (In fact I have switched permanently from SuSE mainly
because of abundance of public _english_ language discussion/support/
beta testing. SuSE is almost as good but too closed.)
I am confident FC2 will be a excellent.
