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?

Seems very nice, but Ive already jumped ship

Ive been using Redhat since version 7.1 and immediately decided to jump ship when Redhat split its market. I installed Debian Woody yesterday and I just finished compiling sound and USB support into the 2.4.22 kernel. Im sure I could have installed Fedora Core 1.0, but I was so irked by the changes Redhat made that I decided to switch to another distribution---at least for my home distribution. (Ironically, I am leaving Redhat on our production machines for the time being.)

I guess Ive outgrown Redhat anyway. Its also nice to be able to do: apt-get install openoffice.org There just seem to be more Debian packages out there.
