Not bad at all! Fedora 19 is an awesome release... I upgraded via yum
from F17 (since F18 didn't really go over very well). For me, this seems
like the least quirky and most reliable release since F13.
Yeah - I upgraded from F18 to F19 about mid-way between Alpha and Beta
and it's been solid for all of my use cases. The thing I like most
about F19 is that they've put in most of the desktops, OpenShift
Origin, OpenStack and most of the solid NoSQL databases! F19 pretty
much rendered Ubuntu irrelevant for my main use case, Computational

symphony with Qtractor (and others), just to see how well it sounds with
FOSS software. With Vienna Symphonic Orchestra samples, frankly, it just
doesn't sound real.
I don't know which sounds worse - synthetic instruments from samples
or synthetic instruments from physical models / integrating PDEs. I've
been pretty impressed by some CSound syntheses, for example, the
French horn. But I really think the next "breakthrough" in
synthesizing orchestral instruments is going to need an open source
GPU library that runs on ATI, NVidia and Intel GPUs and talks to both
What am I doing? Well, not much musically at the moment. I did verify
that most of the stuff in my Github AlgoCompSynth repo installs on top
of Fedora Jam 19, but I'm most likely going to fool around with asm.js
and see what kind of synthesis I can pull off in Firefox. I have half
a dozen or so friends here in PDX that work for Mozilla. ;-)
