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.

RE: What a review!

"One who "has extensively tested and used dozens of different Linux-distributions, like SUSE, Mandrake, Gentoo, or Slackware" should have done better."

it would be nice if you would add more substantial criticizm. saying "cool" or "nuts" does not really help. either readers should tell what they like and dislike or spare such rather unproductive comments.

also keep in mind that a too technical review is not what is/can be expected at osnews (just read the submission-policies) and that nobody would read a real in depth 20 page review. ;)
