The other half of the email I sent a moment ago:


Again, just some observations; overall, the experience is wonderful.

First boot: no problems; looks great. Maybe should offer to auto-login
new user.

Interesting suggestion, so to make sure I understand right, you would
want to see a checkbox auto login this user in the add user screen ?

(and a checkbox for giving this user sudo access) ?

Please file a bug for this against firstboot.

GDM: for my encrypted harddrive use-case: I just entered my password to
unlock the HDD, why do I have to enter it again to log in?

Yes, usually the passwords are different, and we don't want to be storing
the passphrase for your crypted disk anywhere (not even in memory), that
would sort of defeat the whole use of encryption.

Fonts: LCD panel wasn't detected for sub-pixel rendering; fonts are
blurry by default. Overall font quality is poor in contrast to default
install of competitors' distros.

This is a tricky one. Have you tried changing things in the font preferences,
did this help ?

Nit-pick: bash-completion isn't installed by default.

File a bug against "comps" and then maybe it will get added to the
default set for the next Fedora version.

Printing: Preferences>  Default Printer and Administration>  Printing is
confusing. Perhaps renaming Preferences to User Settings and
Administration to Administrator Settings would clarify.

Video codecs: no offer or mention of RPMfusion in contrast to
competitors' distros. (fails the apple.com/trailers test)

Flash: Not offered to install in contrast to competitors' distros. (Only
tried 64-bit Ubuntu as comparison here.)

These 3 are not really installer related so I'll refrain from commenting on
