I'm super happy because it has an LXQT spin. not many distributions come with LXQT

It's a pretty decent release, actually surprised to see LXQT included -although not really big on the lighter-weight desktops unless absolutely needed like on my older HP 2000 laptop. Still a little hesitant on the short release cycle for Fedora when it comes to long-term usage. Otherwise, it always seems to have been pretty decent anytime that I have tried it out.

I've been using it as my daily driver since late-alpha - really is a solid release. I don't really see an issue with the short release cycle, though that's probably because I've been on a rolling release disruption like Arch and Manjaro for some time. I only see an issue with the release cycle if you are running it as a server that you're not going to be operating daily. (Go CentOS!)

Most of the issues I've had, if any, would be software compatibility under wayland - some things just *require* running under X...
