Hmmm, for me 4.2 (upgraded via yum) thus far has been a big ho-hum -
nothing has changed. I have a P4 with onboard Sis (crappy) video card.

      Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code ... If you write
      the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by definition, not
      smart enough to debug it.
