Fedora Core Lunapark reviews Fedora Core 5, and concludes: "I would only recommend FC5 to people who do not own Nvidia video cards or do not mind tweaking a lot default settings to get things working. Otherwise stay with what you are using and wait for SUSE 10.1 or Ubuntu's Dapper. But if you do stick with FC 5 and get past the quirks, it is quite impressive and I am already eagerly awaiting FC 6."

Why Ubuntu rocks

Here's one major advantage I find while using Debian-based distributions (like Ubuntu): updating it. My sister uses SuSE, like I did long time ago, and updating it requires 5 CD's or a DVD. Same applies to Fedora Core.

While on Ubuntu, here's what I've got to do (well, almost) in order to get my system upgraded from Breezy to Dapper Drake:

$ apt-get dist-upgrade

...and wait. Bullet-proof process..

Bottomline: if your concerns are about maintaining a system, Ubuntu is for you.
