A lot of the work after Fedora 6 seemed to revolve around making 
single-user desktop type access more convenient at the expense of more 
general purpose server concepts - and making it boot quickly which isn't 
a big priority on boxes that run all the time.  And some things even 
when not technically broken were annoying, like if a user logs in at the 
console keyboard it would kill the audio output being controlled by a 
remote user.
