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.

I can not stand the idiot-syncracies of an RPM based distribution. I tried to love fedora wit apt, but it was not the same.

thank god Ubuntu has brought modern packages to Debian.

now if Ubuntu would just work out a few usability kinks it will be awesome. I think though that it is a Gnome issue more than a distro issue,
