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 too, had some problems with Fedora 1 which I didn't encounter with Red Hat 9 (and < 9). My Soundblaster AWE64 ISA was not detected and my monitor had its maximum resolution set to 1024*768 (it can do much higher ones).

Of course I could solve these problems in no time, but a more newbie user could not and it is strange these problems were not in RH9. Makes me wonder how much this is based on RH9. All around a very nice distro though.
