Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Recently we've seen the releases of both Ubuntu 8.04 'Hardy Heron' as well as Fedora 9 'Sulphur', to mostly positive reviews. PCWorld Australia decided to pitch these two popular Linux distributions against one another.

"Better hardware compatibility"

I don't get why people think Ubuntu has better hardwaer compatibility than Fedora.

It may certainly be the case, but I would suspect that newer kernels would have better compatibility. Fedora generally has newer kernels.

Am I missing something?

(also 3d support should make it into mainline updates for newer Radeon cards (R5xx/X1xx) Real Soon Now - unless the updates have already been pushed. I jumped ahead and got them directly from the build system (koji))
