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.

btw, Fedora is _FREE_ and does not depend on proprietary software. Never Fedora will adjust to proprietary software. The evolution of Linux does not have to depend on proprietary software. Think about 4kstack.

The idealist within me wants to believe you. However, the realist within me realizes that the rest of the internet makes heavy use of mp3, flash, java, etc.

The realist within me realizes that my computer is far less usable without the nVidia closed source drivers.

Do I wish things were different? Absolutely. However, in reality, I use Linux as my primary desktop, and for the forseeable future I depend on the use of some non-free add-ons.
