So Core 2 is available and all the download mirrors seem to be swamped with people getting their ISOs. "Too many connected users, try again later" is most common message.

I am really eager to check it out. Hardware support will be improved so all the pieces are utilized more efficiently and cause less trouble for new users. New KDE seems to be getting a lot of praises from the reviewers. All in all, it seems to be a release that will attract a lot of new users. See, there are a lot of people out there not interested in the systems innards, they just want to sit down at their PCs and start surfing, e-mailing, chatting, burning CDs and DVDs with least amount of hassle. Hopefully, Fedora Core 2 (and Linux in general) is going towards that goal, of being simple to configure and use for an ordinary people and at the same offering robust and secure platform for software developers, network and web admins.

Just my 2 cents.

I really didn't have many problems with my install of FC2Test3.

I downloaded the binary ISOs via bittorrent last night and averaged 535mb/sec download speeds ... it tooks slightly less than 2 hours to download all the isos ... but I haven't burned them yet.

Maybe tonight....
