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 wins
by Willie G on Tue 23rd Nov 2004 23:01 UTC

Having installed both Warty and FC3 in the last month, and using both for at least a week, I must say Ubuntu is a definite winner for me. It is easier to install and use. I don't care about SeLinux or XFree vs. XOrg, I just want a good, responsive, usable OS that lets me get to work. Ubuntu provides this, and Fedora just confuses me and makes me frustrated. I look forward to seeing RedHat loose market share to Ubuntu and other distros in the future. If you ask me, RH has just been going downhill from version 8, and I don't forsee it getting any better in the future.
