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.

For me it's Ubuntu all the way-- I find Fedora a mess-- too many packages. And, I've said it a million times, Fedora has a 19-item menu. That's insane. When I install my operating system I don't wish to spend hours on making the menu at least a bit useable.

And I don't really get why Ubuntu is the winner in multimedia support-- both do not support mp3 and dvd out of the box, so it's a draw for me.
