I downloaded and installed F10 from CDs yesterday. I was not well 
impressed to find I needed a further 600 Mbytes of updates for a basic 
ia32 desktop install.

There is a need for regularly respun ISOs.

The taste became even more bitter when I found it doesn't work on an HP 
EVO D510 - xorg locks the system, and without a working network the only 
way to regain control is the power button, but that's another story.
