A physical machine might not require proprietary drivers or software to 
support it. A proprietary vm image requires a proprietary software to 
support it. See the difference now?

Its a test release dude.

Why do you assume that. Check http://fedorareloaded.com. Let me know 
what is done badly?

Considering that its a first test release of a rapidly developed system 
I consider that acceptable. Can you kindly let me know the bug report 
number of this video issue so that I can check its not still present in 
the second test release and several updates after that?

Like I said it is being done by Red Hat people with a very close 
association and interest in the project. The only thing thats being done 
is that the work is not associated with the project at any formal level. 
So go take it for the test ride and let us know the results in 
fedora-test list. Hope that helps.
