I've been a Fedora enthusiast for many years and have never participated in the Beta program until now. The look and feel has not changed and that's a good thing. The following items are what I have found so far:

1) Performance is slow compared to 27. When I move my mouse or try to type there is a higher than normal delay. 2) It doesn't play well as a VM. 3) It's resource intensive as compared to 27. 1.5GB and 60% CPU usage in addition to it tripping Psensor's thermal sensors for max CPU and Graphics temps for my hardware.

I will continue my testing and report any additional findings via email as 28 thinks it's running fine therefore I cant send you a bug report.

Maybe is slower because it is Beta?

I think the delay when moving your mouse is because you are using it in a vm. The 60% cpu usage isn't normal though afaik.

I am using the XFCE spin of Fedora 28 installed to SSD drve, and I have noticed very low resource use and quick speed. HTOP is showing just under 700mb RAM in use with Firefox running (1 tab). If you are on a VM, maybe try a different spin ? At least that would help sort out if it is an issue with Gnome

Welcome to ask.fedora. Alas, this site is mostly for those versions of Fedora that have been officially released, and there may not be anybody here who can help with versions still in beta. My best suggestion is to join the Fedora Test List which is specifically dedicated to those versions of Fedora still in testing as you're more likely to get the assistance you need there. Good luck, and keep us informed on what happens.
