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?

I've been using FC1 since t was released. I'm happy so far, but I don't give a twit about mp3s and multimedia stuff.

That said, the issues Eugenia raises have been reported and discussed on the Fedora mailing lists. We will see what happens.

In the meantime, I think what we have here is RH9 with a few improvements around the edges, and, as Eugenia points out, some annoying bugs.

Bottom line: If you aren't interested in multimedia, if you aren't trying to turn your PC into an entertainment center, if you consider the absence of Flash a blessing, and if you avoid installing updates from non-Fedora sources,then FC1 is a pretty slick release.
