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?

@Eugenia ...Fedora... why not SuSE review?

I've personally tested fedora core 1 on a laptop and desktop, and I must I liked it but it has its issues. Samba 3 is a pain to make work, and all in all I've removed fedora core after a while. They've pushed this release out of the door so that they can keep up with the promissed release date and to satisfy the community.
I'd love to see a review of SuSE Linux 9.0 from you. I must say SuSE Linux 9.0 is a great release, works good out of the box and is very stable. It doesn't comme with gnome 2.4, only 2.2 but stabilitty comes first. Also the difference between 2.2 and 2.4 is not big. KDE 3.1.4 is very polished and has overall hacks and neat stuff compared to the stock KDE.

For production/office/business use I would recommend SuSE Linux 9.0 Pro. Its stable, and we need also stable releases. Having the latest .x releases of software every few months doesn't help. In Linux Land software changes much every once a year, and major changes can be seen every 2 years. SuSE 9.0 is also cool for development.
Maybe we see a review of SuSE 9.0 from you Eugenia:)
