When will Fedora work again?


This is a bit of a whiny post but at its heart is a serious point.

F10 didn't work on my hardware. It looks like F11 won't either. In fact F9 only worked when I turned RHGB off.

This is due to a problem with X and support for my (fairly standard) video hardware (Intel D845GERG2 on-board controller, https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=470371).

My question is, what now?

- Wait until it gets fixed? If so please tell me when this might happen so I can try out some different distros and come back at the appropriate time.

- Update my hardware? Are we saying this hardware isn't supported and this is an acceptable way to deprecate it?

 - Work in text mode? Come on, it's 2009.

 - Fix it myself? This might be a bit beyond me.

These are the options as I see them. I understand that Fedora pushes leading edge development but for me this Just Doesn't Work (TM). And would reflect badly for any new users trying this.

If there's a better way to handle this, please let me know.
