My f7 and f8 are both working fine. No major issues but i have noticed it lagging a bit, nothing
that locks me up just seems like something has taken the edge off. I use KDE apps for my music
needs though, i haven't been able to get used to the gnome music players or even soundjuicer. I
much prefer Amarok and Kaudio but didn't really like the KDE desktop implementation on fedora so i
use Gnome for everything but music.
