I have been using Red Hat / Fedora ever since getting RH3.2 on floppy disk. 
Both the distributions and the hardware have grown together and at no point 
have I evern seen an upgrade dramatically affect the performance of a PC.

That is, not until F17.

I have it installed on 2 laptops, 2 servres and approx 5 desktop PC's and 
every one of them is noticably slower than when it was running F16.

My questions are

1) Have others experienced the same problem with F17?

2) How have people found the performance of F18? I do not want to upgrade 
again if my system performance is hit even further
