So I might not ever understand what you said.

    Maybe its too much graphical niceness for you? I've never been one to disable graphical niceness even for "performance" as I feel that's really silly.

    Guess if you feel that you don't need it, then there's really nothing wrong with that.
    To be honest, I was being a bit of a smarty pants. But, that said. In Gnome, I don't like the default font, I don't like the default styling, I don't like the default animations, I don't a gazillion background things being launched, etc.

    Now to be clear, Linux is not my default desktop for many things. I have been able to customize another OS (wow, you don't say??) to fit my needs quite well. And to be honest, my *nix skills help out here a lot. For me, my Linux boot is mostly for development. Command line and a browser. Firefox, I use almost exclusively on that other OS. But looks junky in Linux. Chromium set to Classic styling (bypassing GTK), looks great (set to GTK styling looks junky.) That is all I need. Was running: Arch + Sway + Alacritty + Chromium, now running Fedora + Sway + Kitty + Chromium. Fedora does not have Alacritty in main repos, but does have Kitty.

    I downloaded the Fedora 32 netinstall ISO, so I could get a smaller installer image and also the ability to pick and choose what I wanted to install. I had been running Arch on my dual-boot, but I do some personal and work work on RHEL and CentOS servers images, so figured it would be nice to be in a familiar environment for my Linux boot at home, just something a little more up to date.

    The first time I installed the full standard Workstation environment, so Gnome and whatever else comes with it. Honestly, I want to like Gnome, but it is too much, don't need. Did a second install, this time doing the "Fedora Custom Operating System" for a "basic building block for a custom Fedora system" option. I then built it up from there, for a minimal Sway "desktop". Up to date Sway (for now) and an up to date Red Hat-ish environment (for now), that is really all I need.

    I know there are some folks here that will have their feelings hurt that I just couldn't do the "Gnome Way", but seriously, no way. Maybe some day, but not today. Right now, it's all Sway! What can I say??!!

    Been using fedora for years.

    The perfect compromise between a rolling release and a standard releases.
    QA is also a lot more transparent than in ubuntu and debian friends. It's just another level.

    Microsoft would have just pushed the update.

    I've been running the beta on a number of machines for a couple of weeks and every thing seems solid. I was surprised by the the issue with switching between users as that was a problem I was having with FC31 but went away when I upgraded to 32. Go figure. The only issue I have had so far is with third party packages that haven't upgraded beyond EOL python2 yet.

    Plymouth is a difficult one, it will hide the splash screen when it thinks the system is actually booted, but it's a configuration issue as to when it thinks it's in a ready-state.

    There's a plymouth-wait service that killing should help with that if you want to keep plymouth.

    more services out the box and how they're configured, e.g. firewalld slows network.target being reached.

    It is an interesting blocker (failure to see lvm volumes, "sometimes" when booting in rescue mode or certain custom partitioning uses). Certainly feels like something timing dependent, and as such why it was not seen during regular QA where not all possible timings might happen. While it is unfortunately it was identified just before release, rather than weeks or months ago, it is better to catch it now (and block) before release. Now that they finally have a reproducer they should be able to get it figured out.

    To me Fedora has always been buggy.
    About 99.9999999999% of Fedora releases are delayed at least once, so you know, if it's Fedora, it has to be delayed.
