Fedora Core So, there it is, the highly anticipated second release of Fedora Core. Again, I wanted to wait for a few days for things to calm down,and again, I couldn't resist updating my production system within two days after the release. Well, I'm just a Linux junkie, i guess...

Hmmm. Even though I love the Bluecurve look of FC, I just can't get used to any other distro than Mandrake. I don't know what it is, MDK just feels more "finished" to me. And I'm not talking about looks, but about inner workings. Bluecurve is better than Galaxy, I think.

There are tiny irritations in FC as well; I find the menu cluttered and almost unusable (really, FC developers, take a look at the 'new' MDK K Menu, it's an improvement). And another thing is that some file extensions don't seem to be linked to an application. Sorry that I cannot give any examples, I tried Test 2 some weeks ago, cannot recall exactly.

Still, I'm confident the FC team will overcome these difficulties one day, and they already have the good looks!
