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.

Fedora 3 vs. Ubuntu

The ONLY problem I had, and it is QUITE a problem... Samba did NOT want to work correctly. I could not browse, I could not set up shares. It seemed to me to be TOTALLY busted. Which confused the hell out of me. I have used and worked with FC2 for a bit now and that NEVER had a problem with Samba. Usually, I have problems with hardware, NOT Samba.


I think this is a GNOME/Nautilus problem. If you have KDE installed you CAN browse the network.
