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.

How many CDs does a Fedora install require?

I haven't used redhat/fedora on the desktop since back in the dependency hell days, but I always hear that the installer requires you to have all 3 CDs (or however many there are).

Now I have broadband, but I don't want to download 3 freaking CDs. Fedora is a Gnome desktop, so at least give users the option to install with one CD and apt-get/yum (whatever redhat people use) into whatever system they want.

I can't compare to Fedora 3 or any other Fedora for that matter, but Ubuntu is the best desktop distro I've ever used.
