Well I had a really bad experience on fedora lists with naming the
exact distros and that is why I opted to be a bit elusive this time.
My experience is that fedora devels (or non devels on this lists)
don't like mentioning names like ubuntu, opensuse, mandriva, etc...
and don't like being compared and that is why I didn't name any names.

Ubuntu and Mandriva are the ones I thought about but didn't mention out loud.

Can you be just a bit more specific? I can do that... what would be
cool - a video podcast about comparing fedora and different distros of
3D desktop bugs I came across?

No problem.
