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?

I can comiserate with the article. I've been using Red Hat since Hedwig and cut my Linux gnubie teeth on this distro. Red Hat and now the 'lack of' have always left me feeling a little short every release except for 6.2 and 7.2, but FC1 really dove off the cliff.

I don't have the time to play with a buggy stapled together OS. This is why I left Windows. And to pay for the Enterprise edition, when Red Hat even says Linux isn't ready for the desktop is well uhem ludicrous. I feel my investments into Red Hat software have been fruitless and a WASTE OF MONEY!

Thank heaven for Slackware and I do purchase each release. :-)
