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.

... the fact that running the spellchecker in OO under Fedora crashes the whole system.

Good farking khyrist on a bicycle! And they *ship* it that way?! Or did they never think to pop open OO and see what changes their tweakage wrought?!

Oh, that's right, because OO isn't important at all on a desktop oriented system!

In the meantime I'd like to thank the folks behind FC3 for providing yet another incandescent example of why the rest of us point and laugh at desktop linuxes. I mean, I've like, got this beachfront property in AZ I'd like to sell to them.
