One thing that has not been discussed on this forum for a while is the issue
of the handling of encrypted partitions in F10.
I have an old test laptop that had previously been installed with F9 with
encrypted swap, /, and /opt partitions and an unencrypted /boot partition.
I ran a clean F10 install and asked the installer to reformat the swap, root
and /opt partitions, which it did.
The nice surprise was that on firstboot the system asked me to enter the
luks passphrase for the root partition and seemed to have stored the
passphrases for the other partitions within the root partition so only a
single passphrase was requested. This is excellent and means that booting
the fully encrypted system is now very user friendly.
This makes usability (user friendliness) excellent - so congrats to the
developers for getting this right in F10.
I have not tried suspending that machine so I don't know if coming back from
suspend actually works for this machine but at least booting works nicely
