Fedora Core This article is kind of a follow-up to my first Fedora Core 2 review, published on OSNews in May. Most of the reviews are published shortly after the release of a distribution, and there's always someone who complains that one cannot really "review" a distribution after only a few days of actually working with it.

FC2 is a good all-rounder

I've been pretty happy with FC2 - most of our scientists get it put onto their laptops alongside Windows, and it basically just works well for most things. Once yum is configured, dibbling up the multimedia stuff is easy.

It also works really well on Centrino laptops - just install the IPW2100 packages from, and you're away. I'm eagerly looking forward to FC3, as I suspect that can replace Windows again on my wife's laptop. Fedora is under-rated - I actually expected it to be a bit flaky, due to being so bleeding edge, but it's not. It's been very solid for me.
