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?

Fedora Core1 stuff

Eugenia is (almost) right. Let's see the conslusions:
1. Fedora's role is the public beta testing (of RedHat's tryings).
2. Fedora will be (always) in beta state.
3. We don't know about the updates or security fixes.
4. Future. Next release will introduce kernel 2.6 with the same amount of bugs (beta testing starts again)

So, Fedora is not the right playgroung for you. It's pure RedHat business (ie. community beta testing, which can be sold later as an enterprise product).
