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?

If Fedora is aiming for the desktop market, then anything that requires a user to locate, download and install software is he kiss of death. If it isn't installed by default,
it needs to be as simple as this: "Yum install new-app-that-I-Want". (without telling the user to tweak yum.conf to pull from some non-fedora site.)
