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.

MEPIS works for me...
by Obwan... on Tue 23rd Nov 2004 21:19 UTC

I had Ubuntu installed and found it to be quite nice. It also worked perfectly with my AMD64 processor. I have not tried Fedora Core 3, however after using Ubuntu for awhile, I read a raving review about MEPIS on DesktopLinux.com and I had to give it a try. I believe that review was posted here at OSNews as well. While MEPIS is not a part of this review, it flat out rocks. It comes with multimedia support on install, and everything I've installed works perfectly including Opera. ;D

I found MEPIS to be tremendously better than Ubuntu in many ways. As I said, I haven't tried Fedora Core 3 but I really have no reason to do so because MEPIS does everything I need it to do and more. It would be very hard for Fedora to be better than MEPIS from what I've seen so far.

The review I read can be found here if anyone is interested.
