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?

RE: The battle of the distros and all

KottonmouthKing; i would imagine the great differences in opinion about a particular Linux distro has many factors from user experience, user discretion, user expectations, and Hardware, OEM manufactured computers were built with Windows in mind, and some OEMs are built with some pretty cheap components, and last but not least FUD is spread in BBS boards...

some of those Slashdot people can me pretty mean and rough around the edges since this review was posted at slashdot i would bet a bunch of em came in and bashed Eugina for it, i won't bash her for a difference of opinion as i respect her opinion and her website...

i am using Fedora Core-1 right now and it runs great for me, my only real peeve is the mp3 issue but since it is a legal issue.....well nothing i can do about it--except install some software to remidy the problem, hopefully a xmms-mp3-1.2.8 plugin will be released soon so users can get the stock xmms-1.2.8 that comes with Fedora Core-1 to play mp3s'...

Linux is not perfict, and there is no perfict and ideal distro, all i can say is if you want to use Linux is just find the Linux distro that works best for you. i been a Redhat user since 7.1 and i think Fedora is a fine distro, Fedora may not work for everybody but it works for me just fine...

if i had to choose between Linux and Windows i would certainly choose Linux (without a doubt)...
