I upgraded my system from f14 to f15 at the early alpha stage and have
come to the same conclusion.  I'm going to download the release F15 when
available and replace the upgraded system with a clean install.  At
least, then I'll know what quirks are really in F15 and what are left
over from the upgrade from f13->f14->f15.
