    just put it on a USB thumb drive via Unetbootin or another tool. On my main computer I don't use any optical drive and I don't miss it much; only sometimes I copy DVD iso's on my notebooks, to get it on my optical-drive-free computer.

        I'll check the status again for future test weeks and add wayland testing once it seems like it'd be useful.

          May I suggest posting a link on the fedora page as well? It's ridiculous that after booting from the livecd I had to go to the phoronix article to find the link on the wiki.

              Native KMS support (use it with the generic modesetting X driver and llvmpipe) has been out since ~April. Should work better than the vesa driver.

              You can track the progress of 3D acceleration in the public repos.

                  I found that with Unetbootin you can't modify the kernel commandline, which might be needed (for example for force-enabling the Noveau acceleration with nouveau.noaccel=0). So I've started using the LiveUSB Creator that supports this (by pressing tab in the boot menu).
