Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Linux distros are advancing everywhere. Not only servers but also on the desktop pc and notebooks. There are wild discussions, if Linux-Distributions are ready for serious business work or personal use. This critical review will deal with two long awaited Linux-distributions, Fedora Core 3 and Ubuntus Warty Warhog. Why these two? Because both feature Gnome 2.8 and it would not be a comparision on equal terms to compare Gnome to e.g KDE. Also, both use kernel 2.6.8+ and have their very own theme for the default desktop. Bluecurve for Fedora and Human for Ubuntu.

Ubuntu vs. Fedora?

Ubuntu vs. Fedora?

It's easy to sum up for me:

Ubuntu randomly crashes on my box.

Fedora does not.

Evolution doesn't work properly under Ubunt (AMD64), but it does under Fedora.


Lots of software is far more up to date in FC3 (having come out after Ubuntu), so...

It's pretty cut and dry for me personally. I can't use Ubuntu (because of the random hard locks only it has), don't want to use it (because of problems with evolution and some outdated packages) so it's easy for just to use FC3...

Some days I wish for the Ubuntu polished Gnome desktop with Fedora's update to date and polished in other area feel, and it's RPM package userland (much easier for developers like me to deal with).
