I've been running Fedora Workstation 40 on a number of systems in recent weeks and it's been working out very well. I look forward to upgrading to Fedora Workstation 40 on my main production system as well. Fedora 40 has been running solid and is a wonderful upgrade for existing Fedora Linux users or one to consider for new Linux users as well. Fedora 40 has been running very solid and stable.
