I am all for improvements to Fedora. I run a copy on a second hard drive on my pc. Microsoft's greed is excessive and something/someone needs to clip their wings a bit. If only Microsoft was as concerned with making a bug free product as they were stopping someone from using a "pirated" copy. In their efforts to prevent piracy they have made life difficult on people who repair pcs.
You CAN power on windows and be "logging on" in 20 seconds or less. Windows 7 is fast, and I think you should compare for yourself a base install of the two when it is released (in October 2009, I believe).

However, over time, user-installed programs tend to clog the machine and slow it down. This is also the case with Linux machines, albeit much less so. But blame it on the user - not the OS itself.

I plan on installing Fedora 11 as a VM later this week and taking it for a test drive! Looks promising!
