As a Fedora developer I'm sorry to hear that Fedora is not working well for 
you. We would really like to fix this, but we need good quality input for this.

As much as your sound not working may suck, sending inflametory mails to the 
list doesn't help much.

Please file a bug against bugzilla, including which kernel worked and which 
didn't, and lspci -vvn on both.

As for your other problems, the same goes please file bugs with as much detail 
as possible and reproduction instructions.

Most Fedora developers are very busy, so your bugs may not get the attention 
they warrant, but the chance of developers keeping your mails (with incomplete 
description) to later take a look at the problem is 0.

Thanks & Regards,
