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."

Proprietary drivers a huge problem

I can't even think how difficult it is going to be to try to install Fedora Core 5 on servers with RAID controllers. My personal experience says that quite a large minority of new servers need some sort of proprietary drivers to get the hard drives to be seen during installation. How are you going to get your Linux system to boot up so that you can update the drivers so that you can boot your system up? What a mess... I think I am going to have to stick to Fedora Core 4 and jump straight to Fedora Core 6. At least they went back to a 6 months release strategy.
