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.

Why Ubuntu?
by Jayclark on Tue 23rd Nov 2004 20:57 UTC

The reason I dropped Debian for Ubuntu was its clean and polished. It has a 6 month release date. It stable on my pc. Its simple but yet you can do a lot of tweaking. Thats everything I want out of a distro. Now if its only possible to at least have new packages in the repos the same month they was released, then I will be 100 percent happy. I used FC2 so I can't comment on FC3. But I would be biased anyway since I can't stand rpms. And apt4rpm sucks for the lack of packages.
