Used Fedora Core up to version 5. Never got myself to like that piece of crap!

"yum" was always snail slow (which I read they fixed), and its packages aren't quite well integrated with each other.

Other than general system slowness that I always encountered, the last time I updated a package, it deleted menu items from the K-menu (KDE) and other places. It got me so pissed off because I didn't know the actual program name of some progs & I could no longer even run them from the shell :/

Fedora's slowness comes from it having the cutting edge stuff dumped into it, and its steady release cycle of 6-months.
Upgrading every 6 months is not something I'm fond of, and I'm not into cutting edge thingies either. (compiz fusion? who uses GUI anyway? ;p)

I switched to Kubuntu after that... I'm much happier, even though it has its quirks too, but not as bad as Fedora.

I'm miss my Slackware box :(
