I am currently running F17. As it is nearing end of life, I am anxious to upgrade. Around kernel 3.7, I started to experience very heavy graphics slowdown and corruption. I reported a bug around the time I experienced it . Because F17 has a version of the 3.6 kernel, I can continue using the desktop without interruption.
In preparations for upgrading I tested out F19 Beta, Alpha, and final live CD. All versions show the same bug, creating an unusable desktop.
At this point I am stuck between F19 which has corrupted graphics; unusable desktop and F17 which is EOL and will not receive security updates (not to mentioned outdated).
Any thoughts on what to do?
