I helped my brother dual boot 36 yesterday, and here are my thoughts:

- There's no auto partitioning in the installer for dual booting, it has to be done manually
- Dealing with RPM Fusion & 3rd party repos is weird and unintuitive. This applies to drivers and nonfree codecs
- Software (the package manager) is better than I remember, but still bad
- Flathub repo needs to be installed manually
- dnf is slower than pacman, but faster than apt

Other than that, it's a pretty good experience, but the above needs to be fixed. As of right now, I don't feel it's ready for newbies.

Also, the community (as in the limited interactions I had in the matrix room) is super friendly and welcoming, so that's a big plus.
