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?

Fedore is not ready
by Paulo Junqueira da Costa on Thu 13th Nov 2003 01:00 UTC

As I can see in the comments there's to many people advocating for Fedora. Stuffs like:

"It's not their fault"
"Flash/Java/etc is not installed by default for a good reason..."

The fact is if Fedora wants to be a Desktop distro, it must to do like the Japaneses: Copy what is good and change it to make it better.

They must to see what Mac, Win, Lindows and Xandros are doing.

It's do boring when a home user wants to do some basics and he can't. Doesn't matters where's the problem. To home and corporate users it must work without to know how to install a package or consult FAQS...

I'm a Linux advocate but I think that a community Linux distro only will be ready for the desktop when it stops to think like a geek/hacker and starts to think like a USER.
