- X hung with garbage on the screen after rebooting. Booted into "restore mode" (I forget the exact name), it gave me a text-based dialog where I could say X was broken. Picking that made it spew --help output to the console and redisplay the dialog, but the fix held.
- Have new notifications display.
- Volume buttons no longer work. (I'm on an X60.)
- Turning my wireless on via the hardware switch again makes it auto-find wireless access points. This worked a few releases ago, then broke more recently, and now it's back to fixed.
- Turning compositing on in X made everything very slow. (Despite this being an Intel chipset? Maybe related to above recovery problems?)
- Suspend worked for me once or twice but it hasn't come back from suspend twice now so I guess it still doesn't work. It hasn't worked for so long that waiting another year to see if the next release helps is familiar territory.
- I still can't figure out how to tell gnome what window manager I want. It's changed so many times over the years that none of the four methods I could find online worked.
I'm considering doing a fresh reinstall in the hopes that I have cruft in
/etc/acpior whatever to help with the suspend thing. I was pretty excited the first time it came back from suspend.
(PS: We set up a Fedora 11 box at work for testing Chromium against different compiler/libraries/etc. They use ext4 by default and managed to get a nonbootably corrupt disk within a few days. I'd suggest avoiding ext4 for now -- it's been fine since we reinstalled with ext3.)
