I haven't. I am aktually thinking of moving my main
machine to FC2 this weekend. It is currently on RH9
and is sorely in need of an upgrade. The only thing
holding me back is that I want to move from mbox to
maildir, sendmail to postfix and imap. I'll need to
read up on the maildir format and how it relates to
both postfix and dovecot.

Conveniently ignoring the fact that RH9 -> RHEL3 and
not FC1 or FC2. 'FC is a test bed.' That should be a 
mantra. If you have 'production' machine that cannot
go down, move to another distro. For my usage, FC is
near perfect. I've not had any problems with it that
I could not adjust to. Yep, DPMS shuts of my monitor
after 20 minutes. A good time to take a break.
