What does "Well tested" mean, in this context? Do we have data that shows roughly how many installs were done in Fedora-land, and how long they lasted? (two of the installs in that 7 year period were mine, and ended in complete filesystem loss across clean shutdown/restart cycles. Hardware is still in use, and other than a failed fan, hasn't so much as hiccupped since scrapping btrfs) - Solomon -- Solomon Peachy pizza at shaftnet dot org (email&xmpp) @pizza:shaftnet dot org (matrix) High Springs, FL speachy (freenode)
