    Btw I have a gtx 560 Ti and Fedora 16 works with it with open source drivers and 3d is enabled (the gnome shell works fine). I'm surprised since I thought mesa/nouveau don't support 3d stuff on these cards yet.

    I'd love to give Fedora a ride... but my guinea pig "only" has 512MB of RAM.
    With release 15 I gave up on the text-based install fast: no way to customize the partitioning scheme, and I couldn't get it to launch (XFCE LiveCD).
    I suppose I'm not their target audience.

    I been using Fedora 16 beta for a while, I'm currently downloading Fedora 16 final release but two things that kinda make me sad are that in Fedora 15 brightness keys where working just fine, in Fedora 16 if I keep the increase brightness pressed the whole system freezes for a second and then stays at full brightness all the sudden (it is definitively usable but it was flawless in Fedora 15 and now it isn't), also with Fedora 15 if enabled in the gnome mouse settings tapping with my touchpad I would get right click with two finger tap out of the box and also I could activate and deactivate two finger scrolling (which seems broken in Fedora 16). I'm just hoping that these things get fixed when I install the final release but with Fedora 15 these things where working even in beta phase :/

    @josian_220 When you found the issue in Fedora 16 beta, did you file a bug report in bugzilla? That would have been helpful but maybe it did get fixed nevertheless.

    It would be nice to have a boot time comparison between Fedora and Ubuntu. Now that systemd is fully deployed. I`m very curious about systemd performance.

    You may try partitioning the disk before launching the xfce livecd and making a swap partition large enough. Once I tried and it worked. But anyway, yes, for my tastes they are still too much demanding on resources.

    you can't use the text installer from live boot, no, it's only available from the 'traditional' installer (DVD or netinst). 512MB _may_ work with F16 if you edit the hard floor out of anaconda (grep the code for 768 and you should find it), cross all digits and wait for a following wind. F16's better than F15 and F17 will be better than F16, but we just haven't had time yet to do enough testing to figure out what the actual minimum is and update the posted requirements and anaconda's hard floor yet.

    Default Your birthday too?

    Cool!
    My Bulldozer build will happen this weekend; I think I'll take F16 for a spin (it's time to try it again after some time on Debian.) I want to run btrfs+Flashcache for a SW build workstation so I'll probably want 3.2 asap. Any feedback on such a configuration would be appreciated.
    No Wei▀wurst for me though. Wei▀bier, on the other hand...
