Fedora 14

I have been using Fedora 14 on my laptop since Friday and on both my work and home workstations since yesterday, and so far I have not ran into any serious problem.

The only nontrivial problem was to upgrade from the experimental version of TeXlive (maintained by Jindřich Nový, thanks!) to packages of the same version, built for F14 (on one of the computers I simply did "rpm -e --nodeps `rpm -qa | grep texlive | fgrep .f12.`", then installed the texlive-f14-release package with Jindřicȟ's repository info, and finally re-installed TeXlive from this repository.

It is a shame that systemd has made it into F14 as a preview only. It looks like a cool piece of technology, at least for the desktop use.

Recently there has been exactly zero development in the area of multiseat, but for me it remains in the "mostly working" state (using xdm instead of gdm, using system-wide PulseAudio, manually binding keyboards and mice to the appropriate seats in xorg.conf, and automatic mounting of pluggable disks on one seat only because of lacking ConsoleKit support), which is acceptable for me.

Anyway, keep up the good work, Fedora team! So far this is the best release in several years (if not the best ever).
