Doesn't seem like it's been that long...probably because pre 18-ish Fedora it was, IMO, a truly awful OS.

I was never a fan of Fedora but certainly used it over the years but my biggest issue was the short release cycles.

Before 18 I had issues with the mega-packages instead of meta-packages. You couldn't install, say, just a base KDE desktop. You had to install the ENTIRE KDE suite. They changed that around the 18 timeframe and it's gone up in my opinion quite a bit.

Im trying to remember when I first tried Fedora but I think it was around 17-18. First experience was poor as there were many hardware and software issues.

I think Fedora has improved in recent years, only questioning the small cycle between versions, should be greater.
