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 for me

Having just installed both FC3 and Ubuntu myself I have to go with the Ubuntu side. No problems with install / stability with either, but the messing around to find/add sources for audio/video to fedora was annoying, where as Ubuntu has the full range of debian packages available. Tracking Hoary rather than Warty as well and you get all the freshmeat you can want.
