"Like openSUSE, booting Fedora for the first time is a
different process, and essentially "finishes" what the installer
started. Hardware is detected and configured, and users are created
at this time. And I admit, I was a little concerned as I finished
the user configuration process and was presented with the GNOME
"One enhancement (and the source of very heated debate) featured
in Fedora 10 is how fast and flicker-free the X server kicks in.
The technical explanation for the speed increase and the absence of
the "flicker" is that the X server has been moved from the
traditional virtual terminal 7 to virtual terminal 1. The debate
revolves around whether this performance increase warrants the
departure from how the rest of the Linux community -- currently,
and historically -- manages the X server and virtual terminal
configuration. While I can see both sides of that argument, I was
more concerned that the first time the X server and GDM started, it
seemed pretty typical of every other Linux system."
