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?

How about a review of SuSE 9.0 pro ? I don't see one anywhere on your site, and it's been out longer than fedora right>?

Redhat always has sucked after 6.x, to me it is the responsibility of a DESKTOP O.S. to include things that any DESKTOP USER would so obviously require. Includes of course, multimedia video and audio. There are FREE and GPL mp3 encoders/decoders, DVD encoders/decoders, etc etc. Yeah no kidding about patents, but in this day and age, as well as the relative CHEAP COST TO LICENSE these things, it is the O.S. Distributor's OBLIGATION to include these things for a DESKTOP system.

Case in point - when Linux Desktop vendor gets knocked on the head enough to come to it's senses and realize this, and comes with WORKING and good performing base, then windows will have no chance.

The means are there, so come off your high-horses dillholes (@distros).
