a) what version of kde with plasma 5 did you use. To
get an idea about
plasma 5 you can use a virtualized leap. The integration for 13.2 was far
from perfect and the official version was not plasma 5 but that was more a
Rawhide as of yesterday has kernel 4.4.0 and plasma 5.5.3
Fedora 23 as of yesterday has kernel 4.3.3 and plasma 5.5.3
Fedora 23 was released in November with kernel 4.2.3 and plasma 5.4.2
Fedora 22 as of today has kernel 4.2.8 and plasma 5.5.1
Fedora 22 was released in May with kernel 4.0.4 and plasma 5.3.0
Fedora has earned its categorization as bleeding edge for good reason. Its
users are subjected to significant and frequent version upgrades. Latest
amounts to a rolling release, with latest-1 not far behind, with latest-2
dropped from support only a month after release of latest.
b) what are "all the other scary stories".
This is a quite astonishing
affirmation. In the first 6 month of any distribution I know, a lot of
issues come up.
In Fedora, approximately every 6 months a new version is released. Issues are
constantly coming up.
If you wish to know about scary stories in Fedora, you need simply peruse its
mailing list archives. Its bug tracker provides additional proof. I just
searched there for any of the words "crash segfault segment" for open
kf5-plasma, plasma-breeze, plasma-desktop, plasma-nm, plasma-oxygen,
plasma-systemsettings, plasma-workspace F23 bugs. 65 were returned.
