We're mostly pretty good right now. Mine is running F-24 Alpha XFCE
without issue conntected to a TV with audio via HDMI.

I have mine connected to wired ethernet but the wifi comes up in a "ip
l" list and with kernel 4.5 and the firmware that ships with F-24 it's
not going through the firmware crashing issue that it use to for me so
it looks better than I've ever seen it.

For XFCE it works fine in that regard, not far but sufficient. HDMI
audio works, not tested analog out/in but I plan to test the later
shortly for the project i have for it. I know the GPIO user button
isn't working but I know the general issue there and when I get a
moment I'll finish the patch I have to make that work. I've not looked
at bluetooth.

Overall on F-24 XFCE I've found it very stable for my usecase.
