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."

Member since:

those big organisations should not use fedora anyway, ever heard of suze / red hat enterprise?

Much of what is in fedora will soner or later end up in Red Hat, and that is certainly targeted at large organizations.

The problem with this minor desktop background issue is not that it is hard switch. You do that in a few seconds, or a few minutes if you have really bad eye sight.

The real problem is the developers state of mind. If you are not used to think in terms of usability and accessability you are likely to mistakes when you target the business audience, where things like this matters.

E.g. how many Linux distros would you be able to install blind folded? Why isn't there any Linux distros that tries to identify a sound card early on in the installation process to be able to talk the installer through the installation if he likes.

Another aspect of this is that Fedora is a representative for Linux desktop in general and they contribute to the public oppininon Linux, perhaps more than what enterprise editions from Red Hat and SUSE as this is a Linux version they actually may lay there hands on. As such it is important to address usability and accessability even in tech-edge oriented distros like Fedora.
