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'm running Fedora 1 now on several systems and do in fact like it quite a bit. Eugenia has pointed out some valid complaints in her review with which I agree.

Fedora Core should "just work". Most of the people reading this site are geeks, not newbies. We geeks are used to dealing with symbolic links and jumping through various hoops in order to make things work on our linux systems.

Look at all the technical advice offered in the comments to Eugenia's Fedora review. One could write a Fedora FAQ based upon the information contained in these comments. But again, most of these things should just work, one should not need to be a linux geek or to consult an FAQ to get Fedora Core to work properly.

That is what I am hoping to see with the Fedora project, more community involvement, and a Fedora Core that will be rapidly improved.
