I find openSUSE still faster than Fedora... and GRUB2 in openSUSE
actually works with my partition layout, that doesn't happen with
Fedora, which I can't install with my layout since the beta ;)

I've had severe problems with Fedora 17 GRUB2 on my NVidia workstation
- I've had to abandon it for the moment. But on my laptop, openSUSE
12.2 beta, Fedora 17, Fedora 16 and Ubuntu GRUB2 all work just fine.
Fedora has the annoying habit of putting partitions in /etc/fstab by
UUID rather than the way openSUSE does it, using "/dev/disk/by-id". So
if you rebuild a partition you have to go into Fedora and change
stuff.



These are minor differences, though, IMHO. They aren't going to drive
adoption by creating new users or taking users away from Windows, Mac
or other distros. That only happens via compelling value propositions
and network effects.
