No you're not alone. A lot of us use it with no (major) issue what so
ever and so have no need to troll the mailing lists and complain.

My most recently "Fedora problem" was hardware related and due to
excessive dust build up in the machine, aka my fault.

Other problems I  have had with Fedora are solely related to HAL and
UDEV, every now and then it fails to noticed a tv card of mine on a
cold boot. And now and then udev changes the assigned device name to
one of my two tv cards.

Thats it. I will note however that I am still on F7 due to lazyness
and lack of time. But I am not yet noticing any bit rot.
