Just thought I'd give you an update. I've been running Fedora 10 for several weeks
now with few problems. I think the biggest issue was the video card in the lenovo and I
will make sure that I look into video the next time I purchase a laptop. When I disable
compiz many of the issues go away. It would be nice to have some of the compiz features
but under the current hardware it seems T61/Fedora 10 with compiz is not an option. (I
just see memory creep and CPU utilization crawl upwards to where it's not usable and
But I'm now using F10 on my T61 in a fairly stable way for several weeks.
If anyone can give me a recommendation for a good laptop spec. for my next purchase please
let me know. Thanks.

doesn't work on it. Fedora as a distro doesn't have nothing to do with such
complains as they happen due a lack of proper driver implementation as some companies
still refuses to support linux or because a software component is not working properly. In
both cases Fedora doesn't directly develop the drivers or the components that
doesn't work and you should get your complain to the upstream projects so they can fix
it sometime or fill a bug report to Fedora so they can report upstream and apply patches
as the come in.

Yes i was talking about the hardware. Having proper support for all
brand new hw is quite difficult if the hw vendor doesn't support linux.

and was hoping Fedora 10 was more stable. I realize there are a lot of different hardware
platforms out there and it is difficult to support. I'm a bit surpprised because there
are so many Lenova T6x around I thought that it would have been tested more and there more
I don't know how many hardware platforms they have to test new
releases but i'm pretty sure that the real testing is done when a new release comes
out and we upgrade Fedora to the next version. A lot of things can happen then.
TBW this seemed to get worse the last few weeks so I wonder if some
of my updates made the issue much more frequent.
They must be fighting the bugs :), but still is too soon to have them
fixed. I've run in a lot of problems with NetworkManager with F9 and F10 that only got
solved after the hw driver got properly fixed (intel wifi driver).
