Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu By all means, Ubuntu Linux and Canonical Ltd. have made a spectacular arrival on the Linux scene lately. The combination is like a dream come true for many, many Linux aficionados: tightly selected bleeding edge packages to focus the distribution on a single CD, corporate backing, 18 month support, that all sounds like a formidable package.

Ubuntu vs Fedora
by Anonymous on Tue 2nd Nov 2004 21:42 UTC

I tried both Ubuntu and the FC3 Test 3 and while I do like the keep it simple approach of Ubuntu, I still prefer Fedora for the following reason:

1) Bluecurve is a great default theme and now integrated into Openoffice as well. I dont really care for Ubuntus default theme. I know its personal preference and one can change it but I prefer a nice professional default theme and Bluecurve is just that.

2) Font rendering seems much better on FC3 compared to Ubuntu.

3) No proper UTF-8 support in Ubuntu yet.

4) No bootsplash in Ubuntu yet.

5) X.Org.

6) RedHat system tools and update notification.

I read Ubuntu is working on some of these for their next version so I will definitely try the next release.
For now I am looking forward to Fedora Core 3 Final.
