Fedora Core Fedora Core 1 has been out now for a few days now and many faithful Linux fans have already installed it. Red Hat's Linux is still one of my favorite distributions because of one main reason: compatibility with Linux software. Red Hat is a market leader and following the market leader assures the least trouble for most users. But is this the case with Fedora Core?

red hat is not responsibel for q-and-a

<quote>I wonder, didn't Red Hat's QA actually test common proprietary software that many of its users will want to install?</quote>

no, they didn't. fedora's q-and-a is done by the "developer community" and red hat takes no responsibility for it... refer to this chart:

you think having a hard time getting gaim running was annoying? imagine if it was your company's mail server. bottom line: fedora is useless and dangerous for anyone but desktop users and hobbyists. if you've run servers on 7/8/9 do NOT expect to just continue on as normal using fedora.
