Ive been doing extended live sessions and there have been some issues. First the live boot takes forever, much longer than even some of my former problem distros. Once it boots to live session the screen setup is very nice but there isnt a control center any longer. Youve got system settings but thats it. dnf-dragora is the updater and its buried in the menu under system tools. They should have stuck to the way ROSA does it as I like it much better overall. The difference between live sessions with ROSA and OM4 is striking. ROSA is much faster and cleaner to use overall. Also in live session I cant change screen resolution to 1280x1024 from 1600x1200, which can be done easily in ROSA.

Too early to get too critical but right now ROSA R11 I find to be a much better RPM distro,

Still trying to get use to the newer design choices as I would have preferred either the old school like Mageia or more like ROSA. Same issue today with a very long live session boot up but once in performance is good but great.
I might wait for the final version before I try to install.
