I read the release notes.  Where did they say: "This is bleeding edge
software.  We skipped alpha and beta testing.   Sorry, if you've got
problems because you're our guinea pig." ?    

What I did read was that they had problems with nvidia, but it was
supposedly fixed.   I read that KDE4 was a little rough around the
edges, but was supposed to be usable.    I guess non of the alpha
or beta testers actually upgraded fc8-->fc9 or tried to use the
kicker replacement nor the taskbar  no kmail.   My mistake.  

I guess that it is time to switch OSes if Redhat is going to be 
misleading and preset an OS release notes which seem to imply
that all's well.
