I know you don't listen to Karl's opinions but this one reflects mine
exactly. After watching comments on f8 for several months I installed
I waited because I was not sure whether the f8 version does not have
basic problems.

So I installed it yesterday as I have been installing RedHat and Fedora
versions since RH 4.2. The good news is that it recognized my sound card
while previous versions since FC6 did not. The bad news is sound seems
not to work right. I guess I will have work on pulseaudio.
