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.

Ubuntu - great, but not all roses

Ubuntu doesn't include MP3 support by default either. Ubuntu is also a minimalistic distribution, which means you have to install a lot of applications over the web to match what you get on the other Fedora CDs. It's six and two-threes....

Ubuntu is great, but it's not all roses.
