I'm enthralled with FC3 as well.  I did an upgrade from FC2 instead of a clean 
install, and I haven't encountered any major issues.

I also upgraded KDE to 3.3.2 from the default install (using yum and the 
kde-redhat project).  I used to be a GNOME guy, but after trying KDE on FC3, 
I'll probably never go back.  Installing my DVD player was painless, I've had 
no printing problems and no sound problems (once I got the audio cable from 
the CD drive hooked up to the right jack on the soundcard), and I've 
experienced absolutely no USB problems.  The problems I do have are 
application specific -- gnomad2 doesn't do everything that I would like, so I 
still hook my Zen Nomad MP3 player up to my Windows box from time to time, 
for example.  Otherwise, no problems.
