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.

i am getting tired of people who constantly compare apples to oranges. gentoo is totally useless for me, because i don't have the time or the nerve to compile each and every package myself.

also, let's have a look at the points i mentioned:

gpdf: gnome-related, so probably also on your gentoo-box

sound-mixing: it works, i just had to set it up manually. now don't tell me that it worked automatically for you (except for this kind of "automatically", where you "just had to edit one or two conf-files")

dual-boot-bug: kernel-related. also on your box possible

file-roller: gnome-related. also on your box. i just address them because fedora is gnome-centric and a lot of gnome-hackers are from redhat

rhythmbox: also not strictly fedora-related, mentioned because gnome is fedora-default

mozilla localization is not a bug but an issue of fine-tuning the install. i bet my right arm that gentoo's moz-package comes also in english be default...

so, i conclude: your box is also falling apart...

best regards,
christian
