Yep, I've noticed almost every article about F25 being positive about
FMW too. Great work by everyone involved!
It is a testimony to simplicity.
I am wondering if there's a bit of a gotcha lurking however. The wonky
partition structure used by images once applied to a USB stick can
make them behave very strangely, and in a way a reformat or even
repartitioning won't fix. FMW has an option to wipe all of the
signatures that cause this and restore normal function, but it's not a
feature advertised at media creation time. You'd only know about the
feature upon inserting an already imaged stick.
