This is the state of "desktop" Linux today: it really has nothing left to prove. It took years to become user friendly, but it has arrived, helped along by the world's move to browser-based computing. At this point, the only thing that Fedora and the other Linux distributions can do is embrace and extend the Windows or Mac computing experience, because they've largely matched them (especially Windows).
I'm impressed with the work on xrandr and HAL, particularly with regard to input properties. Devices can now be hotplugged without major issues, and most new distros are having users delete their xorg.conf.
