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?

A total newbie

I am a linux newbie and just started using linux about a week ago. Last time (few years back). I did try to install Redhat 5, but failed. As i remembered, the CD dont even have an installer/guide. Then last week, I think back, why not give a try again. Maybe this time its easy already. And to my suprise, Fedora really rocks! It detect all my devices and including my Logitech Wireless Keyboard+Mouse. At first I'm having problem with mp3,divx, and so on, but a simple search on google give me all the solutions. The new GUI is really nice and fast and its all anti alias. Good job for Fedora Team!. Now my Fedora have Crossover with Office XP and Photoshop installed(got cracked version from the net, really easy to use), Sysnaptic, MPlayer, and running FFSearch (SMB & FTP crawling) on Apache,mySQL,and Perl.IMHO, linux is not ready yet for Desktop users (dont care whatever IBM said ;) ). If me as a newbie can settle most of the problem, I dont think why not for the regular linux user. There is still one problem I cant solve it which is Samba. Somehow I can't access any PC sharing on SMB. I did checkthe SMB service, and it running well. Anybody have the same problem with me? Mind to share?
