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?

1. Eugenia, you are breaking your own rules:
- no hardware description
2. Samba may not work but VMWare is emulation mode that may or may not work. If Fedora can connect with other smb shares but not with xp on VMWare then it is the least priority. Run tcpdump and other diagnostic tools to see what is going on. Otherwise it maybe your faulf (misconfiguration)
3. This is first pre-release of fedora I would not compare it to gold OS X or xp or final version of any OS in fact. So hold on your horses and wait for final release of fedora and then you can compare it to xp, os x or whatever. Right now it is even not least informative.
4. problems with installation of packages (gaim) only prove that their (fedora) database still needs work. By the way - this proof of the superiority of FBSD packaging system - it will take care of all dependencies needed.
