I had to compile mplayer and that took a while setting it up.
But it does work, I can view embedded video.

It has one problem, when going from full screen to normal on an embedded web video, it for some reason opens up the trash folder!

It is a little slower than normal, the reason is some debugginh info is in the current fc7 release, The gnome icons are great.
Livna repository does not work, but I guess thats due to it being fc6 based.
software updater works fine. There was one glitch with some recording software.
I was thinking on the updater when it loads 170 packages, it would be nice to be able to deselect all the packages and just add them back in a few at a time. A single dependency conflict kills the entire process

also, for some reason the drives in fstab which were identified by hda etc... FC7 says are now sda...
I discovered this after installing ntfs-3g and editing fstab to set up my windows partition in /mnt/windows.

If you read the info from redhat on FC7, it states that FC7 right now is suitable for early adopters, that is most should not have any problems with it.

Also my sound sounds better, richer, deeper more like hifi stereo. it actually feels sort of dimensional, not flat in any way.
