I wanted to share my new user experience, in the hopes that it will be improved in the future. The website first suggested filing bugs, but I’m not sure that’s the best place for this.
First off, I noticed the live media picked my middle monitor to display everything on. My middle monitor is neither my primary monitor (according to settings), or the first monitor on the system.
I tried to drag the installer on to my primary monitor, but it made the window much smaller and more difficult to use. I didn’t see an obvious way to make the window bigger again.
After I started the installation it immediately said it was 100% done installing software, which I find hard to believe.
After the installation completed, I rebooted my system and checked the boot devices. I now have “Fedora, Ubuntu, Fedora, …” even though there’s only 1 Fedora and no Ubuntu any more. I told the installer to reformat /boot/efi, which I thought would take care of the extra boot entries, but apparently not.
After booting in to the new installation and setting up a user, the mouse cursor was not drawn on the applications, which made the desktop nearly impossible to use. So, I installed KDE from terminal. After another reboot, I tried GNOME again, and this time I do have a cursor over other apps, but I’m being spammed with SELinux problems.
On the plus side, it actually installed on the first try, which is better than last time, and better than some other distros. So better is certainly good, and I hope it continues to get “betterer”.
