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?

Fedora Core 1 is awesome

I have to say that Fedora Core release "1" is amazing. I have to say congrats to the Red Hat community. I appreciate Red Hat providing yum support out of the "box" so to speak. I don't use the "up2date" util so there is no need for me to complain (plus I have read they fixed this up2date problem about 1 day after it was released). I have also noticed improvements in the stock generic Nvidia support, making me not even having to worry about installing the Nvidia drivers from the site. Well done, a few bugs are expected but that goes with any "freely downloadable" distro. If you want bright polish desktop run RHEL WS. Beautiful, also good job Eugina about your problems, this is definitely not for someone who has not tinkered with linux before. But if you know how to use apt/yum and install rpms this distro is for you.
