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 Speed

I really don't see how Fedora is slow. Seems faster than Ubuntu to me. Just use the prefs panel to diable services you don't want running. I turned off the Postgresql server, apache, sendmail, etc, but never even noticed a speed up. I was very happy with the speed though.
