Fedora Core "As a network professional, I have used various Linux-based systems for many years in troubleshooting and monitoring networks. However, Linux has never been my operating system of choice for my office desktop. Its limitations in other areas and often cumbersome installation and configuration, simply put, left it as a specialized operating system for specific needs. That is, until now. Red Hat recently released its latest free distribution of Linux, Fedora Core 6. I was so impressed with this release that I have replaced one of my two desktop machines operating systems with it. Here's why you, as a networker, need to seriously look at Fedora Core 6."

Disappointing review

Disappointing review from a "network professional's" perspective. Starting out being surprised with's MSOffice compatibility, then being surprised about rdesktop, iptraf and mrtg, and being impressed with general package manager functionality... none of which is unique about Fedora 6. Someone discovering Linux, I'd say - still a good thing!
