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?

Well, you're right about Rhythmbox. It's buggy, and they shouldnt have included it on the CDs. 0.6.0 is pretty nice though, if you use XINE.

But you can't blame them for flash. Do you want them to use an old compiler just to get a plugin?

What if Macromedia doesn't update their linux version for another year? Do you want them to stay with an old compiler then?

Open source software can't be held back by proprietary companies. GCC3 is perfectly stable, and is in product use on many distros.
