Fedora Core It's been about 2.5 years since the first release of Fedora Core. And boy has it come long way! The new version of Fedora Core (FC) is featuring a number of goodies and performance enhancements as we describe below (and yes, it even includes a new logo).

It's still too slow. I feel like everything on my desktop has a little bit of glue on the back and while everything moves and changes just fine, it's just not snappy at all. I see the widgets in windows redraw. I see the window decorations leave trails on previously obscured portions of the windows beneath them. It takes half a second or more for Firefox to switch tabs. It just feels slower.

Why is it that only Gentoo and Windows XP are the only snappy OSes I've ever had on this machine? Do other people who use Fedora and Ubuntu really tolerate this kind of behavior? I have a pretty fast machine (ThinkPad T43) with a decent graphics card (ATI Mobility x300 w/64 MB of video RAM). What do people who have slower machines do? And how can some of these same people complain about Windows XP being slow?
