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?

It's not bad at all

My experience with FC1 has been a lot different: I like it a lot better than RH9. OpenOffice starts a lot quicker (thanks to prelinking in Fedora), printer configuration is improved, and most programs seems to launch a bit faster.

And contrary to your experience, multimedia support is a lot *better* on my poor 500MHz laptop. I haven't been able to make XMMS, Totem or Rhythmbox skip yet. Not once.

And installing flash can be quite easy, if you're using apt: "apt-get install flash-plugin" should do the trick (apt from fedora.us is preconfigured with a flash repository).
